Hastings' Dictionary of the New Testament - Salvation Save Saviour
1. Words referring to salvation in the NT outside the Gospels (for Gospels see Dict. of Christ and the Gospels ii. 552-557, 571-573).-σώζειν (‘to save’) is generally used for spiritual deliverance. The exceptions in the Acts are Acts 4:9; Acts 14:9, where it is used for healing from bodily infirmity, and Acts 27:20; Acts 27:31, where it is used for deliverance from shipwreck. In the other passages in the Acts (Acts 2:40; Acts 2:47, Acts 4:12, Acts 11:14, Acts 15:1; Acts 15:11, Acts 16:30-31) it is used to denote spiritual deliverance. The link between the two meanings may be seen in the quotation from Joel 3:5 (Heb.; Joel 2:32 Eng.) cited in Acts 2:21; cf. Romans 10:13. σώζειν refers to the deliverance from Egypt in Acts 2:21-36; to deliverance from death in Hebrews 5:7; to spiritual deliverance in Romans 5:9-10; Romans 8:24; Romans 9:27; Romans 10:9; Romans 10:13; Romans 11:14; Romans 11:26, 1 Corinthians 1:18; 1 Corinthians 1:21; 1 Corinthians 3:15; 1 Corinthians 5:5; 1 Corinthians 7:16; 1 Corinthians 9:22; 1 Corinthians 10:33; 1 Corinthians 15:2, 2 Corinthians 2:15, Ephesians 2:5; Ephesians 2:8, 1 Thessalonians 2:16, 2 Thessalonians 2:10, 1 Timothy 1:15; 1 Corinthians 4:19-20,0; 1 Timothy 2:15; 1 Timothy 4:16, 2 Timothy 1:9; 2 Timothy 4:18, Titus 3:5, Hebrews 7:25, James 1:21; James 2:14; James 4:12; James 5:20, 1 Corinthians 6:9-10; 1 Peter 4:18, Judges 1:23. In James 5:15 (‘the prayer of faith shall save him that is sick’) σώζειν is interpreted of bodily healing by many commentators; but the general context of a chapter which as a whole relates to what is spiritual, the immediate context associating forgiveness of sins with the particular command (‘and, if he have committed sins, it shall be forgiven him’), and the use of the word ‘healed’ in the next verse to denote healing from sin, concur to indicate that here also the word, as usually in the Epistles, means spiritual deliverance. Any difficulty in understanding ἐγείρω in ‘the Lord shall raise him up’ of spiritual succour is less than that of explaining ‘the prayer of faith shall save’ of bodily healing in this context.
σωτήρ (‘saviour’), used in the Gospels for God (Luke 1:47) and Christ (Luke 2:11, John 4:42), similarly in the Acts and the Epistles refers to God in 1 Timothy 1:1; 1 Timothy 2:3; 1 Timothy 4:10, Titus 1:3; Titus 2:10; Titus 3:4, Judges 1:25; and to Christ in Acts 5:31; Acts 13:23, Ephesians 5:23 (‘the saviour of the body’), Philippians 3:20, 2 Timothy 1:10, Titus 1:4; Titus 2:13; Titus 3:6, 2 Peter 1:1; 2 Peter 1:11; 2 Peter 2:20; 2 Peter 3:2; 2 Peter 3:18, 1 John 4:14.
σωτηρία (‘salvation’), used in the Gospels for spiritual deliverance in general, but connected with the idea of salvation through the Messiah (Luke 1:69; Luke 1:71; Luke 1:77; Luke 19:9, John 4:22), occurs for the deliverance from Egypt in Acts 7:25, for deliverance from death in shipwreck in Acts 27:34, for the deliverance of Noah in Hebrews 11:7. It is used for spiritual deliverance in Acts 4:12; Luke 22:29-30; Acts 13:47; Acts 16:17, Romans 1:18; Romans 10:1; Romans 10:10; Romans 11:11; Romans 13:11, 2 Corinthians 1:6; 2 Corinthians 6:2; 2 Corinthians 7:10, Ephesians 1:13, Philippians 1:19; Philippians 1:28; Philippians 2:12, 1 Thessalonians 5:8-9, 2 Thessalonians 2:13, 2 Timothy 2:10; 2 Timothy 3:15, Hebrews 1:14; Hebrews 2:3; Hebrews 2:10; Hebrews 5:9; Hebrews 6:9; Hebrews 9:28, 1 Peter 1:5; 1 Peter 1:9-10; 1 Peter 2:2, 2 Peter 3:15, Judges 1:3. Eleven (Romans 10:1; Romans 13:11, Philippians 1:19; Philippians 2:12, 1 Thessalonians 5:8-9, 2 Timothy 2:10, Hebrews 1:14; Hebrews 5:9; Hebrews 9:28, 1 Peter 1:5; 1 Peter 2:2) of these instances refer to the future and ultimate salvation; the other instances refer, at any rate partly, to the salvation in this life. In Revelation 7:10 (‘Salvation unto our God which sitteth on the throne, and unto the Lamb’) Revelation 12:10 (‘Now is come the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Christ’) Revelation 19:1 (‘Salvation, and glory, and power, belong to our God’), there is a special way of using the word.
σωτήριον (‘salvation’), used in the Gospels for spiritual deliverance through the Incarnation (Luke 2:30; Luke 3:6), occurs in St. Paul’s speech in Acts 28:28 for spiritual deliverance through the Incarnation, and in Ephesians 6:17 for spiritual deliverance, the future being largely in view. In Luke 2:30; Luke 3:6, Acts 28:28 it is from Isaiah 40:5; Isaiah 52:10 (Septuagint ); in Ephesians 6:17 it is from Isaiah 59:17 (Septuagint ).
σωτήριος (‘bringing salvation’) occurs in Titus 2:11 for spiritual deliverance through the Incarnation.
2. Connexion of NT words with OT words.-The analogous words in the OT are used for external deliverance, for a combination of external and spiritual deliverance, and very rarely for spiritual deliverance simply. The new feature in the NT is the frequent application to spiritual deliverance simply and to the supreme spiritual deliverance through the Incarnation. In the OT the verb יָשַׁע: (yâsha‛), meaning etymologically ‘width,’ ‘spaciousness,’ ‘freedom from constraint,’ usually denotes external deliverance; see, e.g., Deuteronomy 20:4, Judges 3:31, 1 Samuel 10:27, Psalms 28:9, Hosea 1:7; it denotes spiritual deliverance in Ezekiel 36:29; Ezekiel 37:23. The noun תּשׁוּעָה; (yeshû‛âh) is used for external deliverance in, e.g., Exodus 14:13, 1 Samuel 14:45, Psalms 3:8, Jonah 2:9, for the cognate sense of welfare or prosperity in Job 30:15, and for a combination of external and spiritual deliverance in, e.g., Isaiah 12:2-3; Isaiah 45:17; Isaiah 49:8; Isaiah 51:8; Isaiah 51:8; Isaiah 52:7; Isaiah 52:10; Isaiah 56:1, Psalms 67:2; Psalms 98:2, though possibly some of these are instances of spiritual deliverance simply. The noun תּשׁוּעָה (teshû‛âh) is used for external deliverance in, e.g., Romans 14:16-17, 1 Samuel 11:9; 1 Samuel 11:13, Psalms 37:39, and for a combination of external and spiritual deliverance in Isaiah 45:17; Isaiah 46:13, Psalms 40:10; Psalms 40:16; Psalms 51:14, though possibly in some of these instances for spiritual deliverance simply. The noun יַשַׁע (yçsha‛) is used for external deliverance in, e.g., Habakkuk 3:13, Psalms 12:5; Psalms 18:2; Psalms 18:35; Psalms 18:46, for the cognate sense of preserved security in Job 5:4; Job 5:11, and for a combination of external and spiritual deliverance in, e.g., Micah 7:7, Habakkuk 3:18, Psalms 24:5; Psalms 25:5; Psalms 51:12, though possibly Psalms 51:12 may refer to spiritual deliverance simply. The noun מוֹשׁעִה (môshâ‛âh) occurs in Psalms 68:20 only; it there denotes, at any rate chiefly, external deliverance. (For the use of the Hebrew words see S. R. Driver, Notes on the Hebrew Text of the Books of Samuel, 1890, pp. 90, 91 [1]; The Parallel Psalter2, 1904, pp. 455, 456.)
3. Idea of salvation.-A characteristic thought of the NT is that salvation is past, present, and future. This may be seen with regard both to the actual words relating to salvation and to different expressions of the idea. Christians are spoken of as those who have been saved, and who are in possession of a salvation which they can use or neglect: ‘By grace have ye been saved,’ ‘By grace have ye been saved through faith’ (Ephesians 2:5; Ephesians 2:8); ‘According to his mercy he saved us’ (Titus 3:5); ‘How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation?’ (Hebrews 2:3). Yet salvation is also future. As a helmet ‘the hope of salvation’ is to be ‘put on’ (1 Thessalonians 5:8). ‘Now is salvation nearer to us than when we first believed’ (Romans 13:11). Those who now have been justified by Christ’s blood have yet to be saved through Him from the wrath (Romans 5:9); and those who have been reconciled to God through Christ’s death have yet to be saved by His life (Romans 5:10). Christians are bidden to work out their salvation with fear and trembling (Philippians 2:12); salvation is said to be ready to be revealed in the last time (1 Peter 1:5), although it is now received by a foretaste (1 Peter 1:9). Christians are at some future time to inherit salvation (Hebrews 1:14). While Christ has been once for all offered to bear the sins of many, He has yet to appear for salvation to those who wait for Him (Hebrews 9:28). The same three aspects-a past gift, a present possession, a future inheritance-are to be traced also in regard to eternal life, redemption, the gift of the Holy Ghost, and the Kingdom of Heaven, phrases which afford different expressions of the idea of salvation. In the Fourth Gospel eternal life is the present possession of the believer (John 3:36, John 5:24, John 6:47, John 6:54, John 12:50, John 17:2). This is indicated not only by the use of the present tense, but also by that which is asserted about eternal life. To believe, to hear the word, to eat the flesh of the Son of Man, to drink His blood, to be growing in the knowledge of God and of Jesus Christ, are all acts and conditions possible and realized in the present life. But the present possession is also a step towards future attainment. This is hinted at in John 6:40; John 6:54, and more distinctly shown in John 4:14; John 4:36, John 6:27, Hebrews 12:25. Similarly in 1 Jn. the present character of eternal life is indicated in 1 John 3:15, 1 John 5:11-13; 1Jn_5:20; the futurity of it is suggested in 1 John 2:25, and a link between the two is hinted at in 1 John 1:2. In the rest of the NT the idea of what is future preponderates. Acts 13:46; Acts 13:48, Romans 6:22-23, 1 Timothy 1:16; 1 Timothy 6:12 are ambiguous; in Matthew 19:16 (Mark 10:17, Luke 18:18), Matthew 19:29; Matthew 25:46, Mark 10:30, Luke 10:25; Luke 18:30, Romans 2:7, Titus 1:2; Titus 3:7, Judges 1:21 the phrase refers to the future. ‘Redemption’ is used in Luke 1:68; Luke 2:38 and ‘redeem’ in Luke 24:21 for the redemption to be accomplished by the Messiah, and ‘redemption’ is used in Luke 21:28 for that which is to accompany the coming of the Son of Man after our Lord’s earthly ministry ‘with power and great glory.’ In the Epistles redemption denotes a past work in Romans 3:24, Hebrews 9:12; Hebrews 9:15, 1 Peter 1:18; a present possession in 1 Corinthians 1:30, Ephesians 1:7, Colossians 1:14; a future gift in Romans 8:23, Ephesians 1:14; Ephesians 4:30. In Titus 2:14 the word is ambiguous. Hebrews 11:35 is irrelevant. The gift of the Holy Ghost is spoken of as past, present, and to come. It has already been received in 1 Corinthians 12:13, Galatians 4:8, James 4:5, 1 John 3:24. It is a present possession in 1 Corinthians 3:16; 1 Corinthians 6:19, Ephesians 2:18. It is a future inheritance in Romans 8:23, 2 Corinthians 1:22; 2 Corinthians 5:3, Ephesians 1:14. Similarly, the Kingdom of Heaven or of God, which is the sphere in which salvation and redemption and the gift of the Holy Ghost are received, is spoken of sometimes as now existing, sometimes as to be established in the future. In Judges 15:18, 1618166005_40 Colossians 1:13; Colossians 4:11 it is viewed as present; in 1 Peter 3:21; 1 Corinthians 15:50, Galatians 5:21, Ephesians 5:5, 2 Thessalonians 1:5, 2 Peter 1:11, Revelation 11:15; Revelation 12:10 it is regarded as future. In the Gospels the present character is indicated in Matthew 3:2; Matthew 4:17; Matthew 10:7; Matthew 11:11-12; Matthew 12:28; Matthew 12:13, Mark 1:15, Luke 9:2; Luke 9:27; Luke 9:60; Luke 9:62; Luke 10:11; signs of its future character are in Matthew 7:21; Matthew 13:41-43; Matthew 18:6; Matthew 18:9; Matthew 19:28; Matthew 25:34; Matthew 26:29, Mark 9:43-47; Mark 14:25, Luke 13:28-29; Luke 19:11; Luke 21:31; Luke 22:18; Acts 13:26. There is thus a consistent view throughout the NT in accordance with which salvation is regarded sometimes as already accomplished, sometimes as a present state, sometimes as an inheritance to be received in the future. In regard to the salvation thus represented in the NT as an abiding and growing possession the following points may be noticed.
(a) The deliverance which gives admission to the state of salvation is everywhere regarded as accomplished by Christ. In Judges 1:5 ‘the Lord’ of whom Joel (Joel 3:5 Heb.; Joel 2:32 Eng.) declared that through calling on His name there should be salvation is identified with Christ. In St. Peter’s speech in Acts 4:12 it is said that ‘in none other’ than ‘Jesus Christ of Nazareth’ ‘is there salvation; for neither is there any other name under heaven that is given among men whereby we must be saved.’ In the speech of St. Peter and the apostles in Acts 5:31 it is said that Jesus ‘did God exalt with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and remission of sins.’ In St. Peter’s speech at the Council of Jerusalem in Acts 15:11 belief is expressed ‘that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we [2] shall be saved, even as they [3].’ ‘Our Lord Jesus Christ gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us out of this present evil world’ (Galatians 1:4<

Vine's Expository Dictionary of OT Words - Save
A. Verb.
Yâsha‛ (יָשַׁע, 3467), “to help, deliver, save.” Outside Hebrew this word is attested only in Moabite. It appears in all periods of Hebrew (including post-biblical Hebrew) and in biblical Hebrew about 205 times. The verb occurs only in the causative and passive stems.
Essentially the word means “to remove or seek to remove someone from a burden, oppression, or danger.” In Exod. 2:17 (the first appearance of this verb) yâsha‛ signifies to remove someone from a burden or job: “… Moses stood up and helped them, and watered their flock.” The word is frequently used of removing or seeking to remove someone from the danger of defeat: “And the men of Gibeon sent unto Joshua … saying, slack not thy hand from thy servants; come up to us quickly, and save us, and help us …” (Josh. 10:6). This is a request to preserve them from possible death. The real danger is not yet upon them but soon will be. The Gibeonites see in Israel their only help.
Yâsha‛ is used in other situations as when Jephthah tells the Ephraimites that they had been summoned to the war at a crucial time but did not respond and “delivered me not out of their [1] hands” (Judg. 12:2). Here the emphasis is “set free,” or “liberate,” in other words, to remove someone from a condition already upon him. Militarily the word can also be used of “helping,” emphasizing the union of forces so as to forge a single and stronger fighting unit. This is no last-ditch stand for the unit being helped. So Joab told Abishai: “If the Syrians be too strong for me, then thou shalt help me …” (2 Sam. 10:11). Also, compare: “So the Syrians feared to help [2] the children of Ammon any more” (2 Sam. 10:19).
In the realm of justice and civil law yâsha‛ represents an obligation on the part of anyone who hears an outcry of one being mistreated: “For he [3] found her [4] in the field, and the betrothed damsel cried, and there was none to save her” (Deut. 22:27; cf. 28:29). Therefore, one may appeal especially to the king as the one obligated to help maintain one’s rights: “And when the woman of Tekoah spake to the king, she fell on her face to the ground, and did obeisance, and said, Help, O king” (2 Sam. 14:4; cf. 2 Kings 6:26). The king also “delivered” his people from subjection to their enemies (1 Sam. 10:27; Hos. 13:10). Jeremiah says of the messianic king: “In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely …” (23:6). Here yâsha‛ is paralleled by “dwell safely,” a phrase which identifies the meaning of yâsha‛ as “to be preserved from danger.” Ultimately, God is the Great King who “goeth with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you [3]” (Deut. 20:4), and the Judge of all Israel.
The word appears in many prayer petitions: “Arise, O Lord; save me, O my God …” (Ps. 3:7). This is a combination, therefore, of military emphasis (a prayer for deliverance from some enemy by forceful interference) and judicial emphasis (a prayer for that which is the petitioner’s due and the obligation of the one petitioned—in God’s case the obligation is selfimposed through the establishment of the covenantal relationship; cf. Ps. 20:9). In other instances the judicial obligation is in view: “He [6] shall judge the poor of the people, he shall save the children of the needy, and shall break in pieces the oppressor” (Ps. 72:4). In this passage the word in synonymous parallelism to yâsha‛ is shapat, “to see that legal justice is executed.” Very often the psalmist has in view the spiritual aspect of God’s eternal covenant. This is clear in passages such as Ps. 86, where David confesses that, although the ruler of Israel, he is humbled (godly), and that, although enjoying kingly wealth, he is needy (trusting in God). On the basis of these spiritual conditions he prays for God’s covenantal response: “Preserve my soul; for I am holy: O thou my God, save thy servant that trusteth in thee” (Ps. 86:2). The blessings sought here are both eternal (Ps. 86:11-13) and temporal (Ps. 86:14-17).
B. Nouns.
Yeshû‛âh (יְשׁוּעָה, Strong's #3444), “salvation.” This word appears about 78 times and refers primarily to God’s acts of help which have already occurred and been experienced. In Gen. 49:18 (the first biblical occurrence), the word includes the idea of “salvation” through divinely appointed means and from inequity. In 1 Sam. 14:45 yeshû‛âh is used of a human act: “And the people said unto Saul, Shall Jonathan die, who hath wrought this great salvation in Israel?” The word is used infrequently of deliverance and/or help effected by things (Isa. 12:3).
The noun teshû‛âh also means “salvation.” It occurs about 34 times. The word is frequently joined with responses of thanksgiving and rejoicing (Judg. 15:18—the first occurrence; 1 Sam. 11:13). Teshû‛âh, therefore, is sometimes rendered “deliverance” (Judg. 15:18), “victory” (2 Sam. 19:2), as well as “salvation” (Isa. 45:17). The idea of “salvation” is that of preservation from threatened, impending, and perhaps deserved danger and suffering. Yeshû‛âh is used in a few instances of a human act: “Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counselors there is safety” (Prov. 11:14).
The noun yesha’ which occurs 36 times, signifies that which God will do in man’s behalf (2 Sam. 22:3), or that which has been done by Him for man (2 Sam. 22:36). In two instances this word means simply the general absence of oppression and need (Job 5:4, 11).
The word may be translated as “salvation” or “safety.” The noun mosha’ot occurs only once to mean “saving acts” (Ps. 68:20).

Preacher: to Avoid a Lofty Style - A little labour on the part of such pedants would Save a world of profitless toil to their hearers, and enable those uneducated persons who have no means of reaching the preacher's altitude to derive some measure of instruction from his ministry
Renew - His is the delightful ministry to bring the distressed soul under the comforting influences of his supporting love, and to shew the heart, under desponding circumstances, that there is more in Jesus's blood and righteousness to Save, than in all our sins to destroy. " I hope the reader hath not now for the first time to learn acquaintance with this divine office of the Holy Ghost, but can say with the apostle, "the Lord, according to his mercy, hath Saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost, which he hath shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour

Sheep - Sinners are the straying sheep whom the Good Shepherd came to Save (Psalms 119:176; Isaiah 53:6; Jeremiah 50:6; Luke 15:4-6; John 10:8; John 10:11)
Hosanna - ): ânnâ Jahweh hôshî‘âh-nnâ (‘I beseech thee, O Lord, Save now’). Psalms 118:25, whence it is taken) ‘Save now. ’ The now is not here an adverb of time, but an interjection of entreaty, as in ‘Come now’: the word means ‘Oh! Save’ (Jewish Encyc. ), or ‘Save, we beseech Thee. The sequence of the thoughts is natural: for if Jesus be once conceived of as able to Save (either by His own power or by that of Him that sent Him), the next thing, obviously, for His people to do, after asking Him to exert His power in their behalf, is to rejoice that He has come, and to bless Him for coming. But it seems unnatural to postulate so violent an alteration in the meaning of the word—from ‘supplication’ to ‘gratulation,’ when, taken in its original meaning, it yields a sufficient sense: ‘Save now, for it is to thee, O Son of David, that the power to Save us has been given
Freedom - We do not have the power to do what we want to, whether that be to fulfill the law, love others, or Save ourselves.

When we yield to sin as our master, sin uses the law to deceive us into thinking that we are so in control of ourselves that by our own works we can Save ourselves by obeying the law
Supralapsarians - Persons who hold that God, without any regard to the good or evil works of men, has resolved, by an eternal decree, supra lapsum, antecedently to any knowledge of the fall of Adam, and independently of it, to Save some and reject others: or, in other words, that God intended to glorify his justice in the condemnation of some, as well as his mercy in the salvation of others; and, for that purpose, decreed that Adam, should necessarily fall. ...
The decree of the means includes the decree to create men to permit them to fall, to recover them out of it through redemption by Christ, to sanctify them by the grace of the Spirit, and completely Save them; and which are not to be reckoned as materially many decrees, but as making one formed decree; or they are not to be considered as subordinate, but as co-ordinate means, and as making up one entire complete medium; for it is not to be supposed that God decreed to create man, that he might permit him to fall, in order to redeem, sanctify, and Save him; but he decreed all this that he might glorify his grace, mercy, and justice. Which calumny is, that, according to them, God made man to damn him; whereas, according to their real sentiments, God decreed to make man, and made man neither to damn him nor Save him, but for his own glory, which end is answered in them some way or other. Again; we require them to reconcile this system with many express declarations of Scripture, which inform us that God would have al men to be Saved

Deliverance - In such utterances as ‘The Son of Man is come to Save that which was lost’ (Matthew 18:11), and ‘the Son of Man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to Save them’ (Luke 9:56), we have the keynote of Christ’s mission
Faith - James 2:14-26, "though a man say he hath faith, and have not works, can (such a) faith Save him?" the emphasis is on "say," it will be a mere saying, and can no more Save the soul than saying to a "naked and destitute brother, be warmed and filled" would warm and fill him
Deliver - The key words nasal [1] ("draw out, snatch away"), palat [2] ("make an escape"), malat [3] ("to cause to escape"), halas [2] (to "draw out"), and yasa [5] ("to Save") fall within the field of meaning describing God's redemptive activity on the part of his people. God's deliverance is for his people, those who trust and fear him: "To the faithful you show yourself faithful You Save the humble but bring low those whose eyes are haughty" (Psalm 18:25,27 ). Here again, the people of God have hope in the "The Deliverer" (Romans 11:26 ) who will intervene and Save them from the terrible fate reserved for the ungodly: "Jesus, who rescues us from the coming wrath" (1 Thessalonians 1:10 )

Mount Samaria - What unnumbered discoveries of grace have distressed sinners found in those encouraging words of Jesus! The constraint upon the Lord Jesus to go there to seek and Save this sinner, the unprepared, unconscious state of her mind at the time, the tender waitings of Jesus to the hour of her arrival at the well, for he was first there, the tenderness and compassion in all that he said and manifested towards her, his condescension in abiding with the Samaritans two whole days, and the effects wrought upon the hearts of many of the people, as well as this poor woman; these, with numberless other incidents which are found in Christ's visit to Samaria, must always make the very name interesting to the heart of a believer, and especially when the same saving grace which wrought upon this woman's mind hath taken place in ours, so that we can hold out the invitation concerning Christ to others, which she did to her countrymen: "Come, see a man which told me all things that ever I did; is not this the Christ!" (Read the whole relation, John 4:1-42

(Galatians 6:14)...

Moses - (Hebrew: Mosheh, "saved from the waters") ...
Hebrew liberator, law giver, and prophet. Having killed an Egyptian to Save one of his brethren from ill-treatment,he fled to Madian where he married Jethro's daughter (Exodus 2).

" The brazen serpent typified the Son of man, in that...
(1) the brazen serpent had the form without the venom of the deadly serpent; just as Jesus was "in the likeness of sinful flesh" yet "without sin" (Romans 8:3), "made sin for us" though He "knew no sin" (2 Corinthians 5:21); the brazen serpent seemed the most unlikely means of curing the serpents' bites; so the condemned One seemed most unlikely to Save the condemned. ...
(2) The brazen serpent lifted up on the pole so as to be visible with its bright brass (which also is typical: Revelation 1:15) to the remotest Israelite answers to Jesus "evidently set forth before the eyes, crucified" (Galatians 3:1), so that "all the ends of the earth" by "looking unto" Him may "be Saved" (Isaiah 45:22), "lifted up from the earth," and so "drawing all men unto Him" (John 12:32-34). ...
(3) The cure of the body by looking naturally typifies the cure of the soul by looking spiritually; faith is the eye of the soul turned to the Saviour (Hebrews 12:2), a look from however far off Saves (Hebrews 7:25; Ephesians 2:17; Acts 2:39); the bitten Israelite, however distant, by a look was healed

Gideon pleaded that his family was poor, and that he was the least in his father's house. But his small though true faith wanted a sign from God that He would Save Israel by him.

am ha'Arez - At the Exile we are told ‘none were left Save the very poor of the people of the land’ (רַלַח עַם חָאָרָץ 2 Kings 24:14). ’ Montefiore in his Hibbert Lectures denies that such sharp cleavage between the Hăsidim and the ‘am hâ’ârez ever existed Save in the minds of later Rabbis who had difficulty in defining ‘am hâ’ârez, and consequently he questions the authenticity of John 7:49, but on insufficient grounds
Selfishness - To pour out oneself in love, to lose oneself for Christ’s sake, to give oneself to God and to the world of men, is ‘to find,’ ‘to Save’ oneself in Him. ‘What is a man profited,’ Christ asks, ‘if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul?’ To preserve and to Save his soul is thus a man’s highest profit, his one great task. But to seek to Save it in the worldly sense is to lose it in the spiritual and eternal

Intercession - Abraham asked God not to destroy Sodom in order to Save his nephew Lot. Jeremiah responded to God's word of judgment on the nation with a plea for God not to be a stranger among them who could not Save themselves (Jeremiah 14:7-9 )
Thieves - The two crucified with Jesus were probably such: the taunt of the one, "if Thou be Christ, Save Thyself and us," implies sympathy with the Jews' fanatical zeal for national and individual deliverance from Roman rule: they probably were among Barabbas' fellow insurgents, and were doomed to die with him; but he was released, and they were left to their fate. Then he said to Jesus, "Lord remember me": he might have said, Lord Save me from this agonizing cross, as the other said in taunt; but recognizing him as "Lord" by the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:3), he leaves the mode of blessing for the All-wise and Loving One to decide. ...
The place on Christ's right hand in the kingdom, desired by Zebedee's sons, was reserved for the penitent thief, first in the kingdom of suffering, then in the kingdom of glory, His case proves that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law, yet not by a dead faith, for his faith evidenced its vitality by confession of sin and of Christ crucified, by faithful reproof of the scorner if haply he too might be led to repent, by humility, and by hope in the Saviour looking beyond present pain to the eternal state; also that baptism is only "generally "necessary to salvation, a baptized man may be lost and an unbaptized man may be Saved; the baptism of blood supplied the place of the outward sign of regeneration (Hilary, de Trin

Revelation, Book of - Many were confused, for it seemed that Jesus Christ, the almighty king whom they expected to return in triumph, was either unable or unwilling to Save them from the power of Rome. In God’s time he would return to punish all enemies, Save his people, and bring in a new and eternal era. In that day the triumphant Saviour will banish evil, Save his people, and bring in a new age of peace and joy (Revelation 19:13-16; Revelation 22:1-5)

Perdition - Jesus came ‘to seek and to Save that which was lost’ (τὸ ἀπολωλός, Luke 19:10), those who were still alive, not destroyed. The contrast, however, is sharply drawn in Philippians 1:28 and Hebrews 10:39 between those who are Saved and those who fall into perdition; cf

With reference to Christ's atoning work, the believer can confess, “I was Saved when Jesus died for me. We are Saved for good works (Ephesians 2:10 ). ...
(2) The perseverance of the saints: Assurance of salvation is grounded in confidence that God is able to finish the good work begun in us (Philippians 1:6 ), that God who sacrificed His Son for sinners (Romans 5:8-9 ) will not hold back anything necessary to Save one of his children (Romans 8:32 ), and that nothing can separate us from God's love in Christ (Romans 8:35-39 )

Widow - (The feeling among Jews and Gentiles being against second marriages, the desire for conciliation in matters indifferent, where no principle was compromised, accounts for this rule in the case of bishops, deacons, and presbyteresses, whose aim was to be all things to all men that by all means they might Save some: 1 Corinthians 9:22; 1 Corinthians 10:33
Merits - Even the captain did not seem very grateful; so our hero ventured, in a roundabout style to hint, that such valuable services as his, having Saved the vessel, ought to be rewarded at least with some few words of acknowledgment; when he was shocked to hear the captain say, 'What, sir, do you think you Saved the vessel? Why, I gave you that rope to hold to keep you engaged, that you might not be in such a feverish state of alarm. They think they can certainly Save themselves, and there they stand holding the rope with their clenched teeth and their feet tightly fixed, while they are really doing no more than our officious friend, who was thus befooled

Soul, Spirit - Soul is often employed to express the moral undying part of man's being, and it is used sometimes to signify the person: as "all the souls that came with Jacob into Egypt," Genesis 46:26 ; "eight souls" were Saved in the ark. the word ψυχή stands for both 'life' and 'soul:' "Whosoever will Save his 'life' shall lose it; and whosoever will lose his 'life' for my sake shall find it

Valens, Emperor - Numerous acts of persecution at Edessa, Antioch, Alexandria, and Constantinople are attributed to Valens, in all of which Modestus, the pretorian prefect, was his most active agent, Save in Egypt, where Lucius, the Arian successor of Athanasius, endeavoured in vain to terrify the monks into conformity
Salvation - From other words denoting deliverance ‘to Save’ is distinguished by the constant presence of two elements, that of a delivering agent, and that of an active interposition on his part for the removal of actual evil or peril. In a few passages the conception is directly transferred from the national-political to the purely religious sphere, sin being named as the evil from which Israel or the individual is Saved (Ezekiel 36:29, Psalms 51:14). Sirach 51:12 (ἐξ ἀτωλείας), Wisdom of Solomon 16:7, Judith 9:11, Enoch 48:7 (of ‘the Son of Man’; ‘in his name are they being Saved, and he is the God of their life’) 50:3 (eschatological-negative, mere salvation without glory) 63:8, 4 Ezr 6:25, 7:131, 9:8, 12:34, 13:26, 8:39 (the righteous shall he satisfied with salvation in connexion with the Messiah), Ps-Sol 6:2, 10:8, 12:6, 18:6, Baruch 4:22; Baruch 4:24; Baruch 4:29, Test. 8, Jub 23:29, 1 Maccabees 4:30; 1 Maccabees 9:9, 4 Maccabees 11:7; 4 Maccabees 15:3 (‘piety which Saves unto eternal life’) 4 Maccabees 15:27. ’ The Authorized Version accordingly renders in most of these cases ‘to make whole’ or ‘be whole,’ in two ‘to heal’ (Mark 5:23, Luke 8:36), in one ‘to do well’ (John 11:12), and only once ‘to Save’ (Luke 18:42). In one instance it offers ‘to Save’ as a marginal reading for ‘to make whole’ (Mark 10:52). Revised Version NT 1881, OT 1885 everywhere follows the rendering of Authorized Version except that it makes the two passages where the latter has ‘to heal’ and the one passage where it has ‘to Save’ uniform with the others; further, that it renders in John 11:12 ‘to recover,’ and that it offers in all passages except Mark 6:56 the marginal alternative ‘to Save. According to Mark 5:23, the purpose of ‘being Saved ‘is ‘to live. It is true that in some instances the disease or infirmity from which Jesus Saves is not fatal in itself, e. The words ‘thy faith has Saved thee’ are on these occasions the same as were used in such a case of purely spiritual salvation as is recorded Luke 7:50
Agony - John gives no report of the scene in Gethsemane, yet in his account of the interview of Jesus with the Greeks there is introduced what seems to be a faint reminiscence: ‘Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, Save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour. Much more confident can we be that Gethsemane is referred to in Hebrews 5:7-8 ‘Who in the days of his flesh, having offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to Save him from death, and having been heard for his godly fear; though he was a Son, yet learned obedience by the things which he suffered. If the love of Christ has constrained many martyrs for His name to face rack and block, water and flame, and many other painful modes of death without shrinking, and even with the song of praise upon the lips, is it at all likely that He Himself shrank back?...
(2) A more ingenious view, which has an apparent verbal justification in Matthew 26:38, Mark 14:34 (‘even unto death’), and Hebrews 5:7 (‘to Save him from death’), is that Jesus felt Himself dying, and that He feared He would die before He could offer the great sacrifice for the sin of the world. That the truth and grace of God in Him should meet with this insult and injury from the race which He had come to Save and bless—this it was that caused His agony. Must this antagonism of sin to God be forced to its ultimate issue? Could He not Save mankind by some mode of sacrifice that would involve the men concerned in it in less heinous guilt? Must He by persevering in His present course drive His enemies to do their worst against Him, and thus by His fidelity to His vocation must He involve all who opposed Him in this greater iniquity? That such questions cannot have been present to the mind of Jesus, who can confidently affirm? He foresaw the doom of the guilty nation, and He also saw that it was the crime about to be committed against Him that would seal its doom. His prayer was answered, for He was Saved from death, inasmuch as the experience of darkness and desolation was momentary, and ere He gave up the ghost He was able to commit Himself with childlike trust unto His Father
the Man Who Went Out to Borrow Three Loaves at Midnight - How needful it will be for our Lord to come and Save us in the evening of our life, and at the decline of our days! O Save me, Save me, Save me, most gracious Lord, and receive me at the end of my days into Thy heavenly kingdom
Samuel, First Book of - Israel was smitten before the Philistines; but instead of turning to the Lord and confessing their sins, they sent for the ark of the covenant, saying that it should Save them, and made a great shout; but God was not in this act, the Israelites were smitten, including the two sons of Eli, and the ark was captured by the Philistines. After twenty years the people lamented after the Lord, and Samuel said they must put away their strange gods, and prepare their hearts to the Lord and serve Him only, and He would Save them. God caused Saul the son of Kish providentially to go where Samuel was, and then pointed him out as the one to be anointed as king, that he might Save Israel out of the hand of the Philistines. On Samuel presenting him to them — a man taller than the rest of the people, and consequently approved according to man's natural judgement — they shouted "God Save the king. Saul however Saved the best of the sheep and oxen under the plea of these being for sacrifice. Michal also protected him and Saved his life. When this had taken place three times, Saul went himself, but the Spirit of God came upon him also, and he prophesied: David was Saved
Lot - " From the words of warning in Luke 17:32 , "Remember Lot's wife," it would seem as if she had gone back, or tarried so long behind in the desire to Save some of her goods, that she became involved in the destruction which fell on the city, and became a stiffened corpse, fixed for a time in the saline incrustations

Means - " When the Apostle says, "I am become all things to all men, that I may by all means Save some," he is simply speaking of his accommodating himself to various human conditions consistently with fidelity to the truth, with no unscriptural compliance with men, but in the exercise of self denial; "by all means" refers to the preceding context from 1 Corinthians 9:18 , and stresses his desire to be used in the salvation of some

Grace - ...
Saved by God’s grace...
The only way people have ever been forgiven their sin and Saved from condemnation is by God’s grace, and they receive this salvation through faith (Ephesians 2:8). People have never been Saved through obeying the law or offering sacrifices (Romans 3:24-26; Galatians 3:17-22). He chooses to Save people because of his sovereign grace alone, not because of their good works (Romans 11:6; Ephesians 1:5-6; see ELECTION)
Sacrifices in the Old Testament - The animal was then slain, regularly by the offerer, Save in the case of birds, which were killed by the priest. These food-offerings accompanied every holocaust and peace-offering, but never sacrifices for sin or guilt, Save at the cleansing of a leper

Hosea - Assyria, the great northern power, which Israel foolishly regards as her friend to Save her from her acknowledged calamities, Hosea foresees will be her destroyer (Hosea 5:13; Hosea 7:11; Hosea 8:9; Hosea 12:1; Hosea 14:3; Hosea 3:4; Hosea 10:6; Hosea 11:11). ) But an act revolting to a pure mind would hardly be ordained by God Save in vision, which serves all the purposes of a vivid and as it were acted prophecy

Forgiveness - This is very rare in the Gospels (it is never attributed to Christ Himself, Save in quotations and in the institution of the Eucharist in Matthew 26:28 -not in the parallels). in the sense of forgiveness, Save in a quotation (Romans 4:7, from Psalms 32:1)
Election - No one deserves to be chosen by God, but in his immeasurable mercy he has chosen to Save some (Romans 9:15; Romans 11:5; Ephesians 1:5). God chose his people from eternity (Ephesians 1:4; 2 Timothy 1:9) and determined to Save those whom he had chosen (Romans 8:28-29; Ephesians 1:5; Ephesians 1:11)
Philippians, Theology of - Most profoundly God stooped down in the person of his incarnate Son to Save his people from destruction and to provide for them the very righteousness he demanded from them. Rather, Jesus was God's humble servant, the Anointed of the Lord, sent not only to Israel but to the world, to show them his strength by his weakness; his power to Save people, not from Rome, but from death by his own death upon a cross; his ability to reverse the destructive forces not of the emperor but of the Evil One by his resurrection from the dead. He was God's Anointed, God's "Christ" par excellence!...
Paul came to understand all this as a result of having encountered the living, resurrected Christ on the road to Damascus, who, in a moment, had transferred him out of the kingdom of darkness, freed him from the power of evil, Saved him from his sin, and gave him life instead of death. It was this message, then, that he preached to the Philippians: God's action to Save the world through Christ, the long-expected Messiah (1:15-18,27; 3:9,18). God himself has acted to Save. For by Christ and only by him God has worked in a truly indescribable way to Save human beings, to reconcile them to himself, to bring them out of slavery to sin, out of desperation and despair into hope, out of death into life

Baxterians - He taught that God had elected some, whom he is determined to Save, without any foresight of their good works; and that others to whom the Gospel is preached have common grace, which if they improve, they shall obtain saving grace, according to the doctrine of Arminius.

Works - Because sinners cannot Save themselves, they must rely on the grace of God, not on their own works (Ephesians 2:8-9 ; Titus 3:4-7 ). True believers are Saved because their lives are built on the solid foundation of Christ Himself
Night - The sinner is living in the dark and so the sacrifice is constantly being offered for him in order that he may be Saved any time that he will came to the altar to find the Saviour. There is no time in the sinner's life when he may not come and find the Saviour ready to Save him. The Saved man enters into the morning time of blessing, while the unsaved man enters into the night of sorrow and suffering. ...

Praetorium - It is true that the proximity of Antonia to the Temple would be a convenience to the priests and Sanhedrists, and Save them from the toil of attendance at the more remote palace: but Pilate was not the man to study the wishes or comfort of the Jewish leaders at the cost of any discomfort to himself

When Gideon challenged the Lord’s summoning him to deliver Israel, he emphasized that his clan was too weak to do the job: “And he said unto him, Oh my Lord, wherewith shall I Save Israel? behold, my family is poor in Manasseh …” (2 Kings 24:14: “… none remained, Save the poorest sort of the people of the land,” where dallah emphasizes the social lowliness and “poverty” of those people whom it describes

Simeon Stylites - In 423 he built a low pillar, which he gradually raised, till in 430 it was 40 cubits high; there, with his neck manacled by an iron collar, he spent his last 30 years of life engaged in perpetual adoration, Save when he was bestowing advice about mundane matters
Hymn - 21 (Jesus shall Save) can he elucidated only by Hebrew—not Aramaic—phraseology (יושִׁיעַ,יִשׁוּעַ). ]'>[15] seem really to be later amplifications due to liturgical influence, when ὡσαννά (which in its Hebrew form הושע־נא is really a cry addressed to God, ‘Save now!’) was misunderstood as a shout of homage or greeting = ‘Hail!’ or ‘Glory to. ), ingeniously paraphrases, ‘Save us, we beseech Thee, O Thou [17] in the highest,’ taking ἐν τοίς ὑψίστοις as a substitute for the Divine name
Salvation - Of the many Hebrew words used to signify salvation, yasa [1] (to Save, help in distress, rescue, deliver, set free) appears most frequently in the Old Testament. None but God can Save (Isaiah 43:14 ; Hosea 1:7 ). While salvation is a fait accompliGod Saved Israel from slavery in Egypt unto a covenant relationship with himselfIsrael still awaits God's salvation. God had Saved Israel in the past, and therefore God can be expected to deliver in the future. In Matthew's Gospel the angel tells Joseph that Mary's child is conceived of the Holy Spirit, and that he is "to give him the name Jesus, because he will Save his people from their sins" (1:21-23). The disciples themselves responded to Jesus' teaching about the kingdom with the question "Who then can be Saved?" (Mark 10:23-26 ). And if Christ demonstrated his love by dying when we were still sinners, how much more shall we now be Saved by his life? (Romans 5:8-10 ). In hope we were Saved (Romans 8:24 ). Yet the cross is the power of God for those who are being Saved (1 Corinthians 1:18 )
Will of God - Like Abraham, others played significant roles in the outworking of God's will to Save (Acts 13:36 ); at each point God's will was determinative and could not be circumvented (Luke 7:30 ). ...
Does the New Testament teach that it is God's will that all be Saved, and therefore none will be lost? Two passages relate God's will to the expansiveness of the salvation plan. First Timothy 2:3-4 states, "God our Savior wills (thelei ) all men to be Saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. " It should be emphasized that neither text says that all will be Saved regardless of their disposition toward the gospel. The second text similarly relates God's will to Save the all-inclusive "anyone" to the volitional element involved in repentance. Consequently, while these texts tell us that God's will to Save extends to all people, and that he desires to Save rather than to condemn, they do not remove the necessary element of the faith-response to the gospel
Exodus, Book of - ...
Summary of contents...
God saw how the Israelites were oppressed in Egypt (1:1-22), and prepared Moses to be the deliverer to Save them. There God revealed himself to Moses as Yahweh, the eternal and self-sufficient God who would use Moses to Save his people from Egypt (3:1-4:17; see YAHWEH)
Jonah - His prediction of national expansion for the Northern Kingdom, evidently made early in the reign, expressed God's longing to Save His people, wicked though they were. In Jewish exposition the incident was given a negative interpretation as a threat from which Jonah had to be Saved
Revelation - ...
However, something even greater than this was necessary to Save people fully from the consequences of their sin and bring them into a right relation with God
Evangelism - The biblical mandate remains “to become all things to all men, that I may by all means Save some” (1 Corinthians 9:22 NAS)
Elisha - ...
The prophet used his power to provide a widow with an abundance of valuable oil to Save her children from slavery (2 Kings 4:1-7 )
Transfiguration, the - It is very significant that at the end of the scene the disciples saw no man Save Jesus alive
Logos - The word carries God's power to Save (1 Corinthians 1:18 )
Do - ...
Do is used for a verb to Save the repetition of it
Rest (And Forms) - " The work and Person of CHRIST are sufficient to satisfy GOD, and to Save the soul
Gift - It is used nowhere else in the Gospels (save in the OT quotation in John 15:25); but in the Acts and Epistles it usually occurs as the distinguishing word for God’s highest gifts, as of grace itself (Ephesians 3:7), of the ‘heavenly gift’ (Hebrews 6:4), of the ‘unspeakable gift’ (2 Corinthians 9:15), of the saving power of Christ’s life and death (Romans 5:15), of Christ in us (Ephesians 4:7), or of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38; Acts 8:20; Acts 10:45; Acts 11:17)
Hindrance - ...
The Cross that made God the sacrificer and suppliant, and called for faith in a Saviour who could not Save Himself, was a stumbling-block or offence to the wisdom of the world, and to all its religious traditions (Romans 9:33, 1 Corinthians 1:23; 1 Peter 2:8)
Camp - In Psalm 80:2 we read "Before Ephraim, and Benjamin, and Manasseh, stir upthy strength, and come and Save us
Lion - "The Lion of the tribe of Judah" is gone up from the prey, and he alone hath power to kill and to Save
Aaron (2) - Christ was indeed divinely appointed: He was prepared for service, in being made like His brethren (Hebrews 2:17), and fitted by His sympathy (Hebrews 4:15) and fidelity to undertake priestly work on their behalf; through His death on the cross He offered Himself as a sacrifice, apparently on earth and certainly in heaven as a temple not made with hands (Hebrews 9:24); He is able to Save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him as priest, seeing He ever lives to make priestly intercession for them (Hebrews 7:25)
Teeth - These expected GOD to follow out their own plan, and to Save them on their own terms
Judge - He who once came to Save, will one day come to be our Judge; he who then acted as our Redeemer, will then appear as our Sovereign and our King
Salvation - " For, to be Saved as Christ Saves, is to have all our innumerable sins and transgressions forgiven and blotted out; all those heavy loads of guilt which oppressed our souls perfectly removed from our minds. ...
Finally, to be Saved as Christ came to Save mankind, is to be translated, after this life is ended, into a state of eternal felicity, never more to die or suffer, never more to know pain and sickness, grief and sorrow, labour and weariness, disquiet, or vexation, but to live in perfect peace, freedom, and liberty, and to enjoy the greatest good after the most perfect manner for ever
That - In this case, that is not strictly a pronoun, a word standing for a noun but is, so to speak, a pro-sentence, the substitute for a sentence, to Save the repetition of it
Miracles - But it is manifest that this is a false analogy; for the reason why machines are made is to Save us trouble; and, therefore, they are more perfect in proportion as they answer this purpose
Population - ‘Save in the recorded hours of our Lord’s praying, the history of Galilee has no intervals of silence and loneliness; the noise of a close and busy life is always audible; and to every crisis in the Gospels and in Josephus we see crowds immediately swarm’ (HGHL Salvation Save Saviour - -σώζειν (‘to Save’) is generally used for spiritual deliverance. In James 5:15 (‘the prayer of faith shall Save him that is sick’) σώζειν is interpreted of bodily healing by many commentators; but the general context of a chapter which as a whole relates to what is spiritual, the immediate context associating forgiveness of sins with the particular command (‘and, if he have committed sins, it shall be forgiven him’), and the use of the word ‘healed’ in the next verse to denote healing from sin, concur to indicate that here also the word, as usually in the Epistles, means spiritual deliverance. Any difficulty in understanding ἐγείρω in ‘the Lord shall raise him up’ of spiritual succour is less than that of explaining ‘the prayer of faith shall Save’ of bodily healing in this context. Christians are spoken of as those who have been Saved, and who are in possession of a salvation which they can use or neglect: ‘By grace have ye been Saved,’ ‘By grace have ye been Saved through faith’ (Ephesians 2:5; Ephesians 2:8); ‘According to his mercy he Saved us’ (Titus 3:5); ‘How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation?’ (Hebrews 2:3). Those who now have been justified by Christ’s blood have yet to be Saved through Him from the wrath (Romans 5:9); and those who have been reconciled to God through Christ’s death have yet to be Saved by His life (Romans 5:10). Peter’s speech in Acts 4:12 it is said that ‘in none other’ than ‘Jesus Christ of Nazareth’ ‘is there salvation; for neither is there any other name under heaven that is given among men whereby we must be Saved. Peter’s speech at the Council of Jerusalem in Acts 15:11 belief is expressed ‘that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we [2] shall be Saved, even as they [3]
Faith - To the most unlettered Christian this then will be very obvious, that true and saving faith in Christ consists both of assent and trust; but this is not a blind and superstitious trust in the sacrifice of Christ, like that of the Heathens in their sacrifices; nor the presumptuous trust of wicked and impenitent men, who depend on Christ to Save them in their sins; but such a trust as is exercised according to the authority and direction of the word of God; so that to know the Gospel in its leading principles, and to have a cordial of belief in it, is necessary to that more specific act of faith which is called reliance, or in systematic language, fiducial assent. The degree of sorrow for sin, and alarm upon this discovery of our danger as sinners, is no where fixed to a precise standard in Scripture; only it is supposed every where, that it is such as to lead men to inquire earnestly, "What shall I do to be Saved? " and with earnest seriousness to use all the appointed means of grace, as those who feel that their salvation is at issue, that they are in a lost condition, and must be pardoned or perish. ) Is it only the assent of the mind to the method by which God justifies the ungodly by faith in the sacrifice of his Son, although this is an element of it; but it is a hearty concurrence of the will and affections with this plan of salvation, which implies a renunciation of every other refuge, and an actual trust in the Saviour, and personal apprehension of his merits: such a belief of the Gospel by the power of the Spirit of God as leads us to come to Christ, to receive Christ, to trust in Christ, and...
to commit the keeping of our souls into his hands, in humble confidence of his ability and his willingness to Save us
Paul - Of his family we know nothing, Save that he had a nephew, who detected a conspiracy against his life
Palm (of Hand) - These are what one claps together in joy and applause: “And he brought forth the king’s son, and put the crown upon him, and gave him the testimony; and they made him king, and anointed him; and they clapped their hands, and said, God Save the king” (2 Kings 11:12)
Lot (1) - ...
His sin is faithfully recorded, his offering to sacrifice his daughters' honour to Save his guests
Redemption - Nevertheless, there is the suggestion that redemption cost God something; for he had to use his mighty power in acts of judgment to Save his people (Exodus 32:11; Deuteronomy 4:37-38; Deuteronomy 9:26; Deuteronomy 9:29; Isaiah 45:13; Isaiah 52:3; Isaiah 63:9)
Martin Luther - A violent reaction resulted; after having placed undue reliance on his efforts towards justification and confused concupiscence with original sin, he declared that man was hopelessly corrupt and that all his works, even those done from charitable or pious motives, were grave sins; that he could be Saved by faith alone, in virtue of which God clad him as with the mantle of Christ's merits and concealed but did not blot out sin. At this time the main points of his creed, seem to have been: the Bible is the sole rule of faith; man is totally corrupt; he lacks moral free will and all his acts, even sin, are the work of God; he is justified by believing God will Save him; this faith includes a pardon of sin and all its penalties; Baptism, the Eucharist, and Penance are the only sacraments; the hierarchy and exterior worship are unnecessary; the priesthood is universal; there is no visible Church

Knowledge - It consists in having a better understanding of God's will in the ethical sense (Colossians 1:9-10 ; Philippians 1:9 ), of knowing that God desires to Save people (Ephesians 1:8-9 ), and of having a deeper insight into God's will given in Christ (Ephesians 1:17 ; Ephesians 3:18-19 )
Foreknowledge - When Joseph's brothers sold him as a slave, God was in reality sending Joseph to devise a plan that would Save the whole family from starvation (Genesis 45:5-7 ). The brothers intended to harm him, but God knew that many lives would be Saved through Joseph's wise planning (50:20)
Manichaeans - Christ came, they said, to Save the souls of men, and not the bodies
Joshua - His first name was Hosea, or Oshea; Hoseah signifying saviour; Jehoshua, the salvation of God, or he will Save. " And from the twenty-fifth verse of the following chapter, it appears that the book was written before the death of Rahab: "And Joshua Saved Rahab the harlot alive, and her father's household, and all that she had; and she dwelleth in Israel even unto this day; because she hid the messengers which Joshua sent to spy out Jericho
Education - It is only within the past 25 years that scholars, led by men like Denifle, Rashdall, and by Haskins and Rand, in the United States, and the Mediaeval Society, have begun to show what the Church had done to Save and promote learning and develop civilization and culture
Timothy, First And Second, Theology of - In 1 Timothy 1:15 , Paul claims that Christ Jesus came into the world to Save sinners, himself being one of the worst. Paul also writes that God desires all humankind to be Saved, not just a few (1 Timothy 2:4 ). One thing is clear: God is not going to Save all humankind; for other Scriptures state conditions that must be met before the universally applicable salvation becomes a reality in individual lives. Others have taught that the verse means that God wants to Save all humankind and provides it for all, but it becomes applicable only for those who continue receiving it. ...
A strong soteriological emphasis in these epistles, which is found elsewhere in the Pauline writings, is that we are not Saved by our own good works, but for the purpose of good works. Paul clearly states that God has Saved us, "not because of anything we have done, but because of his own purpose and grace" ( 2 Timothy 1:9 ). "...
With this emphasis that humankind cannot Save itself, goes the stress also on the fact that our salvation is for the purpose of good works; and this is a major theme in 1,2Timothy. It is probably that the definite article with "childbearing" is the important item here, and that the intent of the verse is that the woman will be Saved, even though she fell into transgression in the beginning, through THE Childbearing, the incarnation of Christ as promised to Eve in Genesis 3:15 . The woman's continuance in faith, love, and sanctity with self-restraint are then assumed, by these interpreters, to be evidences of a living faith within the Saved woman
Ark of the Covenant - 1 Kings 8:9 states there was nothing in the ark of Solomon's temple Save the two stone tables of the law; but Hebrews 9:4 states there were also the golden pot of manna (the memorial of God's providential care of Israel), and Aaron's rod that budded (the memorial of the lawful priesthood, Numbers 17:3-10). ...
The ark was never seen Save by the high priest; symbol of God whom no man can see, and whose likeness is only to be seen in Christ (John 1:18; Hebrews 1:3), the true Ark, and our High Priest with the Father
Renunciation - Thus is realized the paradox (Mark 8:35) that the Christian loses his life to Save it. He Saved others—He could not Save Himself
Uniqueness - ‘All things have been delivered unto me of my Father; and no one knoweth the Son Save the Father; neither doth any know the Father, Save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son willeth to reveal him’ (Matthew 11:27)
Hopefulness - When He disclosed Himself it was as the source of all grace, so that men might be Saved and nourished by His life. A similar anticipation of coming joy in the salvation of those He came to Save may be felt in the words, ‘Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost’ (Luke 15:6). He sees the uttermost parts of the world potentially present in the persons of these Gentiles, and He declares that ‘the hour is come that the Son of Man should be glorified’ (John 12:23); and yet, foreknowing the terrible fate that awaited Him before the achievement of His desire, He alternated between the joy of hope and the sorrow of human dread, and prayed to be Saved from that hour (John 12:27). Thus we see that our Lord was in hope, as in all else Save sin, ‘like as we are’ (Hebrews 4:15)
Neighbour (2) - And not only towards those who are fellow-subjects of the Kingdom is love inculcated: it must extend even to those who are our enemies and the enemies of God (Luke 6:37-38); for Christ came to seek and to Save the lost, and the Christian must follow in his Master’s steps. But that we may be able to do this—to help the weak brother and to Save him from his defects—it is first needful that we should be conscious of our own
Mediation Mediator - Peter also says that the Jews ‘shall be Saved through the grace of the Lord Jesus, in like manner as’ Gentiles (Acts 15:11). His collision with the Judaizers (Acts 15) turned on the sufficiency of the work of Christ to Save, apart from the Jewish ceremonialism. ‘For I determined to know nothing among you, Save Jesus Christ, and him crucified’ (1 Corinthians 2:2). But the resurrection of Christ is guarantee of His power to Save, so that ‘in Christ shall all be made alive’ (1 Corinthians 15:22)
Elect, Election - People are lost and it is God alone who Saves them; beside him there is no other savior (Isaiah 43:11 ) and no other plan of salvation (Acts 4:12 ). Whatever it be, whether false gods, other human beings, angels or other supernatural beings, or even ourselvesthey cannot Save us. Because it is God alone who Saves, those who are Saved are seen to be the ones whom God has chosen (or elected) to be Saved. None who is ultimately redeemed can boast that they Saved themselves or that they added anything to the salvation that they received through Jesus Christ. ...
Those who are Saved, the believers in Jesus Christ, are called "the elect (chosen)" (Matthew 24:22 ; Romans 8:33 ; Colossians 3:12 ; Titus 1:1 ; Revelation 17:14 ). They are called the elect because God chose them to be Saved (Matthew 22:14 ; John 6:37,39 ; 15:16,19 ; Acts 13:48 ; Romans 11:5 ; 1 Thessalonians 1:4 ). The term is applied to those who believe and also to potential believersthose whom God has yet to Save are called the elect (2 Timothy 1:9 ). ...
Inasmuch as God has chosen some to be Saved, he has also chosen how he will Save them
the Angel of the Church in Sardis - Dose a minister sufficiently with praise, and you will soon drown his soul in perdition, if God does not interpose to Save him. Ay, such remembering and such repenting will yet Save this all but lost minister of Sardis, and it will Save some ministers among ourselves who are quite as far gone as he was. And as he was Saved through this Epistle, so will they; and like him they will yet receive the heavenly reward that is here held out to us all by Him who has the seven Spirits of God and the seven stars
Joshua - He was Hoshea only ("he will Save") up to his noble witness after spying Canaan. Henceforth, Jehovah's name is prefixed, Jehovah by him would Save Israel (Numbers 13:16). This forms the contrast in the Antitype (Matthew 1:21), "thou shalt call His name Jesus, for Himself (Greek, not merely 'Jehovah by him') shall Save His people
Fathers of the Church - The Council of Ephesus (431) declared in its first session that it would define nothing Save what had been held unanimously by the ancient and holy Fathers
Struggles of Soul - ...
What struggles of soul must have resulted from the thwarting of His love and grace by the misunderstanding or unbelief of His relatives (Mark 3:31-35), His disciples (Matthew 15:17; Matthew 16:9; Matthew 26:31, Mark 14:27), His fellow-townsmen (Mark 6:6), and the Jerusalem which He so loved that He wept over it (Luke 13:34; Luke 19:41)! He strove to turn Judas from his betrayal (John 6:70, Matthew 17:22; Matthew 26:23, John 13:27, Luke 22:48), and to Save Peter from his denial (Luke 22:32)
Wisdom - Jesus died for sinful people so that they might be Saved. Actually, they are the ones who are foolish, for they reject what God in his wisdom has done, and try by their own misguided wisdom to Save themselves (1 Corinthians 1:18-25). People may think they are wise, but they must humble themselves and trust in God’s wisdom if they are to be Saved (1 Corinthians 3:18-20)
Zeal - Such faith cannot Save (James 2:14-18)
Genealogy of Jesus Christ - Five females are in Matthew's Gospel: incestuous Tamar, Rahab the Moabitess and a harlot, Ruth, Uriah's wife Bathsheba the object of David's adulterous love, and above all Mary; all extraordinary monuments of God's grace, that chooses out of the vilest to make vessels unto honor, for the bringing forth of the promised Seed, who was to Save sinners of every type and race
Lily - It was in the valley of this our lower world the Son of God came, when he came "to seek and Save that which was lost
Ark of God - In Eli's days when Israel was defeated they fetched the ark from Shiloh that it might Save them, but they were again defeated, and the ark, in which they had placed their confidence instead of in Jehovah, was seized by the Philistines
Zacchaeus - He had said then, "how hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God;" yet to show us that "the things impossible with men are possible with God" (Luke 18:18-27), and that riches are not an insuperable barrier against entrance into heaven, the case of the rich yet Saved Zacchaeus follows. "For the Son of man (sympathizing therefore with man, however fallen by sin) is come to seek (Zaachaeus sought Jesus, Luke 19:3, only because Jesus first sought Zaachaeus) and to Save that which was lost
Helladius, Bishop of Tarsus - Helladius with Eutherius of Tyana next drew up a long letter to pope Sixtus, giving their account of the council of Ephesus and begging him as a new Moses to Save the true Israel from the persecution of the Egyptians. Helladius thus Saved himself from deposition and exile at the expense of consistency
Mercy - So is that fondness, of a parent that withholds the hand of discipline from a beloved child, when its frowardness and faults render seasonable and prudent correction necessary to Save it from ruin
Build - The phrase “son of man” is used in this sense— God is asked to Save the poor individuals, not the children of the poor ( Day of the Lord - They failed to realize, however, that in that day God would punish all sinners, Israelites included, and Save all the faithful, regardless of national or social status (Joel 2:30-32; Mark 13:32-3736; Malachi 3:1-4; Malachi 4:1-3)
Paulinus, Missionary to Northumbria - Among the relics in York minster were a few of his bones and two teeth, but nothing else to commemorate his great work in the north, Save an altar which bore his name and that of Chad conjoined
Jehoshaphat - " All that depended on him he did, but the people could not yet rise up to his spirituality so as to worship Jehovah without any visible altar Save the one at Jerusalem (2 Chronicles 20:32-33). There he would have paid with life for his dangerous alliance with cowardly Ahab, who sought to Save his own life by exposing his magnanimous ally, but for God's interposition
Free Will - We are not free Save within certain limits, and many things—our native tendency to sin, heredity, environment, above all the force of habit—operate against our acting freely in accordance with our consciousness of what is best. We are, Save in so far as we may have ourselves enslaved our wills, bound by no outward or inward constraint to will other than the good
Forgiveness (2) - Secondly, that no complete study of Christ’s teaching concerning forgiveness can be made, unless other words, such as ‘save,’ ‘justify,’ and ‘cleanse,’ are taken into account, and the whole subject of release from the guilt and bondage of sin, as promised by Him, is kept in view. In the same connexion may be taken the interpretation of the name Jesus in Matthew 1:21 ‘he shall Save his people from their sins,’ and the ‘Saviour, Christ the Lord,’ of Luke 2:11, though the word ‘forgiveness’ does not occur. It was indeed implicit throughout our Lord’s ministry, all His declarations concerning His coming ‘not to call the righteous, but sinners’ (Matthew 9:13), ‘to seek and to Save that which was lost’ (Luke 19:10), and His promise of ‘rest to the souls’ of men (Matthew 11:29), showing that the object of His ministry was to reclaim from sin, by bringing men to that forgiveness and cleansing which God had promised through repentance and faith in Him. The three recorded in Luke 15 were uttered to show the nature of Christ’s mission and His desire to seek and Save the worst sinners, as well as the willingness of God to receive such, and the joy of heaven and earth when the penitent returns and is pardoned. The mission of Christ to Save the outcast and the abandoned is here delicately and beautifully shown
Above And Below - They have no meaning in a boundless Universe Save in relation to our observation, and appearances are misleading
Passover - They made their bread without yeast (leaven), to Save time waiting for the dough to rise. This reminded them that, having been Saved through the Passover, they had fled from Egypt hastily, cooking unleavened bread as they travelled (Exodus 12:33-34; Exodus 12:39)
Backsliding - "They will no longer defile themselves with their idols and vile images or with any of their offenses, for I will Save them from all their sinful backsliding, and I will cleanse them. Hoekema, Saved by Grace ; J
Slave/Servant - Industrious slaves could make and Save money and purchase their own freedom
Son of David - Character became the condition of enjoying the benefits of the new Kingdom, and in turn the new Kingdom—Messianic, ideal—was to exist for the sake of the individual, to Save him from his woes, and to lead him to righteousness
James, Epistle of - The implanted word, received with meekness, is able to Save the soul. ...
The epistle closes somewhat abruptly with a short statement of the result achieved in the restoration of any who had erred from the truth; a soul is Saved from death, and a multitude of sins are covered
Jerusalem - And while the Lord knoweth them that are his, and will Save them by his grace, the nations who reject Christ, nationally considered, must perish
Joseph - He came indeed, not only to seek, but to Save that which was lost; but like another Joseph, the treatment he received corresponded in all points, only in an infinitely higher degree of baseness and cruelty
Jacobus, Bishop of Nisibis - For the tale of the final siege of 350, which lasted three months, and of the bishop's successful efforts to Save his city, see Gibbon, c
Miltiades, Bishop of Rome - De Rossi supposes the approaches to the old crypt to have been blocked up by the Christians to Save it from profanation; and the state in which the passages leading to it have been found confirms this supposition
Saul - A band whose hearts God had touched escorted him to Gibeah, while the worthless despised him, saying "how shall this man Save us?" (compare Luke 14:14, the Antitype, meekly "He held His peace"; Psalms 38:13). The Israelites, as the Romans under the Etruscan Porscna, were deprived by their Philistine oppressors of all smiths, so that no Israelite Save Saul and Jonathan had sword or spear (1 Samuel 13:19-21). ...
Samuel was not directing Saul to go at once to Gilgal, as seen as he should go from him, and wait there seven days (1 Samuel 10:8); but that after being chosen king by lot and conquering Ammon and being confirmed as king at Gilgal, he should war with the Philistines (one main end of the Lord's appointing him king, 1 Samuel 9:16, "that he may Save My people out of the hand of the Philistines, for I have looked upon My people, because their cry is come unto Me"), and then go down to Gilgal, and "wait there seven days, until I come, before offering the holocaust. ...
Had he waited but an hour or two, he would have Saved his kingdom, which was now transferred to one after God's own heart; we may forfeit the heavenly kingdom by hasty and impatient unbelief (Isaiah 28:16)
Idol, Idolatry - They are powerless to Save (Isaiah 45:20 ). Israel was even told, with the voice of irony, to call upon idols for help (Deuteronomy 32:28 ; Judges 10:14 ; Jeremiah 11:12 ) but the gods could not even Save their own people (2 Chronicles 25:15 )
Holy - The Gospels make clear that Jesus came to Save His people from their sins (Matthew 1:21 ; Luke 1:31-35 ). Being sanctified, or made holy, is a work of the Holy Spirit on the basis of Christ's atonement that calls for obedient submission from those who have been Saved
Vanity - ’ But in 1 Corinthians 15:17 the reference ( malaios ) is to a faith which is ‘frustrate,’ or ‘void of result,’ because it does not Save from sin (cf
Master - It is not translated "masters" in the rest of the NT, Save in the AV of James 3:1 "(be not many) masters," where obviously the RV "teachers" is the meaning
Satan - God desires rather to Save people from evil (Matthew 6:13; 1 Corinthians 10:13)
Tabernacles, Feast of - The feast was called Hosanna, "save we beseech Thee
Judging (by Men) - Paul had determined (κεκρικει) to sail past Ephesus (Acts 20:16); he determined (ἕκρινα) not to know anything among the Corinthians Save Jesus Christ and Him crucified (1 Corinthians 2:2); not to come to them in sorrow (2 Corinthians 2:1)
Barabbas - In his desire to Save Jesus, Pilate bethought himself of this custom as offering a loophole of escape from the dilemma in which he found himself between his own sense of justice and his unwillingness to give offence to the multitude
Indulgences - In the Romish church, are a remission of the punishment due to sin, granted by the church, and supposed to Save the sinner from purgatory
Tree - " Those who exercise this virtue certainly Save themselves from much trouble, and become a rich blessing to many. An unsaved person lives the life of an unsaved person
Set On, Set Up - In an extended sense śı̂ym signifies “to assign to continue,” or “to preserve”: “And God sent me before you to preserve you a posterity in the earth, and to Save your lives by a great deliverance” ( Darius - After a precipitate march of many days, he overtook the traitors, who, seeing themselves pressed, endeavoured to compel Darius to get upon horseback, and Save himself with them; but he refusing, they stabbed him in several places, and left him expiring in his chariot
Love - It was an exercise of the Divine will in deliberate choice, made without assignable cause Save that which lies in the nature of God Himself, Cp
Ezekiel - The people had no one but themselves to blame for the coming judgment (18:1-32), and no king would be able to Save them (19:1-14)
Children of God - Considerable importance attaches to the solemn words in Matthew 11:27 ‘All things have been delivered unto me of my Father: and no one knoweth the Son, Save the Father; neither doth any know the Father, Save the Son and he to whomsoever the Son willeth to reveal him. The words declaratory of the love of God in sending the Son to Save men are variously assigned to Jesus and to the Evangelist
Achan - Who is that stealing about among the smoking ruins? Is that some soldier of Jericho who has Saved himself from the devouring sword? When the night wind wakens the embers again these are the accoutrements and the movements of one of Joshua's men. Ask and say, Is thy Name indeed Jesus? Dost thou indeed Save found-out men from their sins? Art thou still set forth to be a propitiation? Art thou truly able to Save to the uttermost? For I am the chief of sinners, say. Though I walk in the midst of trouble Thou wilt revive me, and Thy right hand shall Save me
God - ...
God works as Redeemer to Save the sinful, rebellious human creatures and to renew His fallen creation. He redeemed Israel in the Exodus from Egypt ( Exodus 1-15 ); through the prophets He promised a Messiah who would Save His people, and in Jesus Christ provided that salvation (John 3:16 )
Gideon - Former judges, Othniel, Ehud, Barak, had been moved by the Spirit of God to their work; but to Gideon alone under a terebinth in Ophrah, a town belonging to Joash, Jehovah appeared in person to show that the God who had made theophanies to the patriarchs was the same Jehovah, ready to Save their descendants if they would return to the covenants. "Angel of Jehovah," but manifested as JEHOVAH) replied, "Go in this thy might (the might now given thee by ME, Isaiah 40:29), and thou shalt Save Israel from the hand of the Midianites; have not I sent thee?" Then followed the requested "sign," the Angel of the Lord with the end of the staff in His hand consuming with fire Gideon's "offering" (minchah ), not a strict sacrifice but a sacrificial gift), the kid and unleavened cakes (compare Genesis 18, the theophany to Abraham very similar)
Italy - After a period of occupation by the Goths, Italy again became part of the Roman Empire, subject to the Caesaro-papism and later the culpable neglect of the Byzantine rulers, until Pepin and Charlemagne were summoned by the popes to Save Rome from the Lombards
Unwritten Sayings - ’...
‘Jesus saith … Do nothing Save the things that belong to the truth, for if ye do these, ye shall know a hidden mystery
Bible, Egypt in the - ...
Save for an obscure allusion to an alliance between Joram, king of Israel (851-842), and the reigning Pharao, Egypt does not appear again on the scene of Biblical history until the last years of the Northern Kingdom, when Osee, the last king of Israel, in order to prevent being engulfed in the ever-growing torrent of Assyrian invasion, called on the help of Sua, probably the future Shabaka, founder of the XXVth Dynasty, then a high officer in the Egyptian Empire (4Kings 17)
Manasseh (1) - come and Save us
Esther - Mordecai's insistence that Esther must intervene to Save her people is based on the idea that a good Jew must worship and be loyal to the covenant God and to Him alone
Deliver, Deliverance, Deliverer - ...
A — 10: ῥύομαι (Strong's #4506 — Verb — rhuomai — rhoo'-om-ahee ) "to resuce from, to preserve from," and so, "to deliver," the word by which it is regularly translated, is largely synonymous with sozo, "to Save
Flood - The rescue of the family of Noah shows God's yearning love to Save
Foreknowledge - The New Testament writers perceived in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus the outworking of God's eternal plans to Save sinful humanity. If God already knows in advance who will be Saved or elected, does that not eliminate free human will? Does God predestine some people to salvation and others to damnation?...
One major attempt to answer this question is associated with James Arminius (1560-1609) who argued, as did the pre-Augustinian church fathers, that God's foreknowledge is a prescient knowledge, that is, God knows in advance what a person's response will be, so He elects to salvation in advance those whom He knows will freely accept Christ. He predestines some to be Saved, but not on the foreknowledge of how they will respond; rather in His foreknowledge He foreordains apart from any human response. Paul's point in Romans 8:29-30 is not to discuss who is foreknown and predestined to be Saved and who is not. The writers were not attempting to answer the question of whom God Saves and whom He rejects, nor were they intending to limit free human choice
Covenant, Book of the - As to the date of the Book of the Covenant, there is no evidence Save what the document itself affords us
Colossae - ) reflects a popular belief in the mediation of Michael to Save the inhabitants from an inundation
Antonius - When the storm had ceased he withdrew, though now an old man, to a more complete isolation than ever, near the Red Sea; and here, to Save his disciples the trouble of bringing him food, he made a small field of wheat, which he cultivated with his own hands, working also at making mats
Comfort (2) - ’...
While the mission of Christ was mainly to Save men from their sins, it was also His purpose to bring them true relief from their troubles
Cry - —This passage, which has direct reference to our Lord, calls for special notice here: ‘Who, in his days of flesh, having offered up, with strong crying (μετὰ κραυγῆς ἰσχυρᾶς) and tears, prayers and supplications unto him that was able to Save him out of death,’ etc
Keep, Watch, Guard - Satan was directed “to keep,” or “to tend” (so as not to allow it to be destroyed) Job’s life: “Behold, he is in thine hand; but Save his life” (Job 2:6)
Parousia - He was the Christ in the sense that ( a ) He was anointed (empowered) by God to deliver men; ( b ) He was gathering and preparing men for His Kingdom; ( c ) He died and rose to manifest the Justice and love of God, and thus Save those who accepted Him as Christ; ( d ) He would return to conquer Satan, judge both the living and the dead, and establish His Kingdom either in heaven or on a renewed earth
Egypt in the Bible - ...
Save for an obscure allusion to an alliance between Joram, king of Israel (851-842), and the reigning Pharao, Egypt does not appear again on the scene of Biblical history until the last years of the Northern Kingdom, when Osee, the last king of Israel, in order to prevent being engulfed in the ever-growing torrent of Assyrian invasion, called on the help of Sua, probably the future Shabaka, founder of the XXVth Dynasty, then a high officer in the Egyptian Empire (4Kings 17)
Mind - ...
B — 5: σωφρονέω (Strong's #4993 — Verb — sophroneo — so-fron-eh'-o ) signifies (a) "to be of sound mind," or "in one's right mind, sober-minded" (sozo, "to Save," phren, "the mind"), Mark 5:15 ; Luke 8:35 , "in his right mind;" 2 Corinthians 5:13 , RV, "we are of sober mind" (AV, "we be sober"); (b) "to be temperate, self-controlled," Titus 2:6 , "to be sober-minded;" 1 Peter 4:7 , RV, "be ye
Elisha - He helped the poor widow of one of the godly prophets by giving her a miraculous supply of oil that Saved her entire family (2 Kings 4:1-7). In one place Elisha worked a miracle to Save the day’s food from being lost, and in another he miraculously recovered a borrowed tool that had fallen into the river (2 Kings 4:38-41; 2 Kings 6:1-7)
Faith - ...
Saved by faith...
Whether in the era before Christ or after, people have been Saved only through faith in the sovereign God who in his mercy and grace forgives sin; and the basis on which God forgives sin is the death of Jesus Christ (Romans 3:24-26; Romans 4:16; Romans 4:22-25; 2 Corinthians 4:13; Galatians 3:11; see JUSTIFICATION; SACRIFICE). People can never be Saved from sin, never be accepted by God, on the basis of their good works or their law-keeping. God Saves people solely by his grace, and they receive this salvation by faith (Ephesians 2:8-9). ...
Faith in itself does not Save. ...
Living by faith...
Christians are not only Saved by faith, they live by faith
Feasts - The accompanying Feast of Unleavened Bread recalled the people’s hasty departure from Egypt when they had to make their bread without leaven (yeast), cooking as they travelled in order to Save time (Exodus 12:8; Exodus 12:34; Exodus 12:39)
Romans, Epistle to the - All need grace, and none can be Saved except by faith. What can lie before us Save progress to perfection? Reconciled to God while yet enemies, for what can we not hope, now that we are His friends? Christ is indeed a second Adam, the creator of a new humanity. His power to Save cannot be less than Adam’s power to destroy. Even now a remnant has been Saved by grace; and the present rejection of Israel must have been inteoded to Save the Gentiles. In God’s grace he has found also the secret of overcoming for the man who is conscious of the awfulness of sin, and of his own inability to Save his life from destruction
Claims (of Christ) - , Mark 12:6), and it finds full expression in that great saying, ‘All things have been delivered unto me of my Father; and no one knoweth the Son Save the Father; neither doth any know the Father Save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son willeth to reveal him’ (Matthew 11:27, Luke 10:22), which serves in St
Numbers, Book of - Their failure under responsibility was now completely manifested, and God decreed that all of twenty years old and upwards should die in the wilderness, Save Caleb and Joshua, and that their little ones should be brought into the land. ...
Numbers 26 ; Numbers 27 : The people are again numbered, with a view to inheriting the land, but all the men of war included in the first numbering, Save Caleb and Joshua, had died
Lazarus - ...
So o'er the bed where Lazarus slept,He to His Father groan'd and wept:What saw He mournful in that grave,Knowing Himself so strong to Save?The deaf may hear the Saviour's voice,The fetter'd tongue its chain may break:But the deaf heart, the dumb by choice,The laggard soul that will not wake,The guilt that scorns to be forgiven:-These baffle e'en the spells of Heaven:In thought of these, His brows benign,Not even in healing cloudless shine. "Now is my soul troubled: and what shall I say? Father, Save me from this hour; but for this cause came I unto this hour
Mary - But as the inn was crowded, Mary had to retire to a place among the cattle, and there she brought forth her son, who was called Jesus (Matthew 1:21 ), because he was to Save his people from their sins
Ahaz - The place was appropriate to Isaiah's message from God that their labors were unnecessary, for God would Save the city; it was also suitable for addressing the king and the multitude gathered for the stopping of the waters there
Romans, Letter to the - The gospel is for all people equally, because all are sinners under God’s judgment and they can be Saved only by God’s grace (Romans 1:16; Romans 2:9-11; Romans 3:9; 1618166006_92; Romans 10:12; Romans 11:32; Romans 15:8-9). All people are under the power of sin and are unable to Save themselves from its penalty, whether through religious ritual, the keeping of the law or personal good works (see GOOD WORKS; LAW; SIN). Even when Saved by grace through faith, believers are still dependent on God for victory over sin. Gentiles, by contrast, have accepted it by faith and so are Saved (9:6-10:4)
Arms - Curiously analogous to this is the stipulation mentioned in the league which the Etrurian Potsena conceded to the vanquished Romans (Pliny, 34:14), namely, "that they should not use iron Save in agriculture
Vain - ) in prayer, as well as from His own example, when He sought relief from the weight and pressure of His work and ‘continued all night in prayer to God’ (Luke 6:12), or when He ‘offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to Save him from death’ (Hebrews 5:7), satisfying the fervour of His feeling of Sonship with the cry, ‘Abba, Father,’ and returning to His oratory in the depth of the Garden to offer the same prayer as before (Mark 14:39 (Matthew 26:44) τὸν αὐτὸν λόγον εἰπών, ‘the same petition,’ rather than ‘the same words’; cf
Ephesus - The secretary tried to act as intermediary between the people and these officials, and Save the people from trouble at their hands
Lamentations, Book of - 586 Nebuchadnezzar captured Jerusalem, put out the eyes of Zedekiah, slew the princes, burned the Temple and palaces, razed the walls, and deported the inhabitants (save some of the poorest sort) to forced labour in Babylon ( 2 Kings 25:1-30 )
Predestination - God's purpose is one of love and grace (Deuteronomy 7:6-8 ; Isaiah 41:8-9 ), above all because in love he predestined what should come to pass in his plan to Save and to restore sinful humanity through Christ (Ephesians 1:5 )
Philosophy - Paul practices the principle he sets forth in 1 Corinthians 9:22 : "I have become all things to all people, that I might by all means Save some
Mansion - But while the English ‘mansion’ and the identical French word maison have retained from their common original only the developed meaning of ‘dwelling-place,’ the Greek μονή is nowhere in extant literature found with this meaning, Save only in John 14:2
Mary - Martha, a good housewife, was busy making ready the festal cheer; but Mary, oblivious of all Save the Lord’s presence, seated herself, in the posture of a disciple (cf
Spitting - " (Psalms 69:19-20) When therefore, under the pressure of a broken heart, Jesus cried out, "Eli, Eli, why hast thou forsaken me?" instantly they perverted the cry of Jesus, and jeered him, as if instead of calling as he did, upon his God and Father, he had called for one that was no helper, in Elias, and cruelly insulted him with adding,"Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to Save him!"...
Reader, I would only add, amidst the glories of Jesus, in the hall of Pilate, and on the cross, do not overlook the glory of the Son of God in the voluntary shame he endured
Cosmopolitanism - The presence of foreigners, however, is seldom mentioned in the Gospels, Save for a few references to centurions (Matthew 8:5, Luke 7:2; Luke 23:47), strangers from Tyre and Sidon (Mark 3:8), a short journey to Decapolis (Mark 7:31, where, strangely enough, the Aramaic word ‘Ephphatha’ finds special place in the text), and the notice of the Greeks who sought for Jesus at the feast—though no account of His interview with them is given (John 12:20)
World - God loved the world, sending his Son into it to Save rather than condemn it (John 3:16-17 ; 12:47 ; 1 John 4:9 )
Clean, To Be - He said: “… I will Save them out of all their dwelling places, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so they shall be my people, and I will be their God” ( Messiah - It was not long before he was found out to be an impostor, and was obliged to flee from Italy to Poland to Save his life: what became of him afterward does not seem to be recorded
Waldenses - That there is no mediator and advocate with God the Father, Save Jesus Christ. That after this life there are only two places, the one for the Saved, and the other for the damned. ...
When Piedmont was subjected to France in 1800, the French government, Buonaparte being first consul, placed them on the same plan of toleration with the rest of France; but on the return of the king of Sardinia to Genoa, notwithstanding the intercession of Lord William Bentinck, the old persecuting edicts were revived in the end of 1814; and though they have not been subjected to fire and faggot as aforetime, their worship has been restrained, and they were not only stripped of all employments, but, by a most providential circumstance only, Saved from a general massacre
pe'Ter - The name of Peter as founder or joint founder is not associated with any local church Save the churches of Corinth, Antioch or Rome, by early ecclesiastical tradition
Judgment - ...
Jesus Christ the judge...
The purpose of Jesus’ first coming was not to be a judge but to be a saviour; not to condemn sinners but to Save sinners (John 3:17; John 12:47). It determined whether they would be Saved or condemned (John 3:19; John 9:39; cf
Linus (1) - ...
The intention to destroy Peter is revealed by MARCELLUS and other disciples who pressingly entreat him to Save himself by withdrawing from Rome
Mary - Martha, a good housewife, was busy making ready the festal cheer; but Mary, oblivious of all Save the Lord’s presence, seated herself, in the posture of a disciple (cf
Kings, Books of - Through Elijah’s help, Ahab Saved Israel from a Syrian attack (20:1-43), but he was doomed to suffer God’s judgment (21:1-29). ...
Josiah repaired the temple and reformed the nation (22:1-23:27), but he could not Save Judah from destruction
Woman - Although Athaliah was a wicked queen, Esther, who came to power in Persia under most unusual circumstances, used her position to Save her Jewish kinsfolk. Just as in the Old Testament women enjoyed many prominent roles Save one, the rest of the New Testament reveals women in all positions of spiritual leadership Save that of elder or overseer
Sanctify, Sanctification - Jesus came into the world from the Father to Save from sins (Matthew 11:19, Luke 15:7; Luke 15:10; Luke 15:18, Matthew 26:28, John 3:16-17). The hidden principle must be made secure if the life is to be Saved (Matthew 7:24-27). ‘Whosoever will lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, shall Save it’ (Mark 8:35 ||). And a very solemn claim made by Jesus is that ‘none knoweth the Father Save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son willeth to reveal him’ (Matthew 11:27)
Individualism - To be taught of God means to be Saved from this kind of individualism, to discover that it is not our right position and not our true selves, but is alienation from our true life and our true home; it is to learn that not only is love part of our nature, but that we have never found ourselves at all till it takes us out of ourselves (Luke 17:33, Matthew 10:39). That kind of individualism stood at the foot of the Cross, and said, ‘He Saved others, himself he cannot Save,’ and saw in the position the height of absurdity. When He turned from that way to the road that led by a solitary path to Calvary, to call many, but to choose only the few who also would be prepared to walk in it, He surely decided to look to the individual to Save the institution, and not to the institution to Save the individual. It is quite true that a person in a state of salvation is one called and admitted into a society; but, just because it is a society of Saved persons, it is different in its relation to its members from all visible societies
Virgin Birth - ...
The reason for this divine intervention is for the redemptive well-being of creation: more specifically, as Jesus' name implies, "to Save his people from their sins" (Matthew 1:21 ). Irretrievably lost in its own sin, it is completely unable to Save itself. No one is Saved by works
Paul as a Believing Man - And I am determined, he says, that so far as I am concerned you shall know nothing in this life, at any rate, Save Jesus Christ, and Him crucified. Or if he is ever carried away to say that, he instantly takes it back and says, God forbid that I should glory Save in the Cross of Christ
Virgin Virginity - John or any of the other apostles was married we cannot say, Save in St. Even the deaconesses are not required to be unmarried (1 Timothy 3:11); and, as we saw above, the younger widows are to marry again so that they may not be a burden on the Church funds, and so as to Save them from sexual temptation
Lord (2) - believe on Jesus as Lord), and thou shalt be Saved,’ Acts 16:31. Yet, as Dalman says, ‘it must … be remembered that the Aramaic-speaking Jews did not, Save exceptionally, designate God as “Lord,” so that in the Hebraic section of the Jewish Christians the expression “our Lord” was used in reference to Jesus only, and would be quite freh from ambiguity’ (p. Matthew 8:25 (κύριε) ‘Lord, Save us: we perish
Confession - ...
The Epistles bear the same witness: ‘No one can say that Jesus is the Lord, Save in the Holy Ghost’ (1 Corinthians 12:3). ‘If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thy heart that Cod hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be Saved’ (Romans 10:9). For him conscience was supreme arbiter, No troubled conscience can find relief Save in full acknowledgment of fault
Sanballat - 'Ye know not what spirit ye are of,' said our Lord to His disciples when they wished Him to consume the Samaritans off the face of the earth, 'for the Son of Man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to Save them. ' To Save them, that is, from all their inherited hurts, and hatreds, and antipathies, and animosities, and suspicions
Minucius Felix, Marcus - These members of an illegal society dreaded to bring their doctrines into the light of day; they had no altars, no temples, no images, and were not even in their manner of worship like the Jews, the only people besides themselves who worshipped that wretched lonely God Who had not been able to Save His own people from captivity; yet wished to meddle with everything and pry into every thought and every action. In the prospect of this imaginary life they gave up all enjoyment of their real present life, trusting in a God Whose impotence was exhibited in their daily sufferings from which He was unable to Save His worshippers
World, the - Jesus, “the lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world” (John 1:29 NIV), was sent to Save the world ( John 3:17 ; John 10:36 ; John 12:47 )
Relics - Many travelled with this view into the eastern provinces, and frequented the places which Christ and his disciples had honoured with their presence; that with the bones and other sacred remains of the first heralds of the Gospel, they might comfort dejected minds, calm trembling consciences, Save sinking states, and defend their inhabitants from all sorts of calamities
Son of God - One day the Son will return to Save his people and set in motion those events that will lead to God’s final triumph (1 Thessalonians 1:10; Titus 1:13)
Unicorn - In the same manner as when foretelling the desolation of Egypt, he mentions, as one manner of effecting it, the bringing down the fly from Ethiopia, Isaiah 7:18-19 , to meet the cattle in the desert and among the bushes, and destroy them there, where that insect did not ordinarily come but on command, Exodus 8:22 , and where the cattle fled every year, to Save themselves from that insect
Oil - ...
In the absence of a suitable rock-surface, as would naturally be the case within a city of any antiquity, a solid block of limestone circular, four-sided, and eight-sided (Megiddo) are the shapes recovered by recent explorers was hollowed to the depth of a few inches, a rim being left all round Save at one corner
Wisdom of Christ - As Irenaeus beautifully says: ‘He came to Save all by means of Himself—all, I say, who through Him are born again to God—infants, and children, and boys, and youths, and old men
Son of Man - In His preaching, He sowed the seed of God's kingdom (Matthew 13:37 ), for He came to seek and to Save the lost (Luke 19:10 )
Hour - He saw that the glory would be won at a great cost, and the prospect of it brought distress of soul, and wrung from Him the cry, ‘Father, what shall I say? Save me from this hour
Self-Examination - There is a true Light which lighteth every man; One who dwells with us, near us, in us; One who will Save us from self-flattery and self-deception, and from mawkish self-consciousness
Feet - GOD would Save him out of these perplexities by His wonderful love and power
Numbers as Symbols - Solomon had six steps to his great throne, 1 Kings 10:19 ; but it was not elevated enough to Save him from idolatry. Eight souls were Saved in the ark, to commence a new world
Dropsy - If they allowed a man to Save his son or his ox from a position of imminent danger, and yet considered the Sabbath rest unbroken, how much stronger claim had a man, suffering from an incurable malady, upon Him whose power to heal had again and again been manifested?...
It is possible, perhaps, to trace an element of scorn in Jesus’ attitude on this occasion
Sign - ...
...
it was a sign of man's helplessness and inability to Save himself
Apocalyptic - It certainly postulates the inability of humanity to Save itself and thus looks to God to complete history in the kingdom of glory
Death of Christ - But sin He hated with perfect hatred; and He lived and died to Save men and the moral course of the world from it. All the moral powers of holy love, self-sacrifice, and service that were individualized in Him as the incarnate Son of God and man’s Redeemer,—these powers, which were His life, He laid down, consecrated, employed, every moment and in every situation of His life of free activity, in order perfectly to fullil His life’s vocation as determined for Him by His Father’s will and purpose, and by the moral necessities of the world which He had come to Save. What, then, are the nature, the objects, and the methods of our Lord’s mediation?...
(1) Its general object is to Save individuals from their sin by reconciling them to God, to perfect them as individuals in their moral nature and life, and to unite all who are thus Saved in a life of eternal oneness with God, and with one another in Him
Evangelize, Evangelism - As in the military context, the basic message is one of complete victory: "Your God reigns!" God, with supreme sovereign power, has acted in covenant loyalty to Israelto restore, comfort, redeem, Save, and protect her (52:8-12). When God acts to Save and restore Israel he will relieve physical oppression by release from exile and an establishment of justice in Messiah's reign (11:4; 29:18-19; 49:13). Neither this use nor the fact that a local pastor, Timothy, is instructed to do the work of an evangelist should lead us to the false conclusion that the biblical understanding of evangelism in its full exposition by Paul is so broadened that in the end it does not retain its sharp focus of proclamation of the good news of salvation to the unsaved. Christians only rightly apply such evangelizing to themselves in their Saved condition when they continue to
Man (2) - The official class—the Sadducees and priests—also felt that new wine like this would burst the old skins, and that a new society might arise, in which they themselves might be anywhere Save at the top. It was while sitting and talking with a Samaritan—a Samaritan woman—that He said: ‘God is Spirit’ (John 4:24); it was in the house of Zacchaeus that men first heard that ‘the Son of man came to seek and to Save that which was lost’ (Luke 19:10); while it was in answer to ‘a certain lawyer’ that Jesus related the parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37)
Coming to Christ - ‘In none other is there salvation: for neither is there any other name under heaven that is given among men wherein we must be Saved’ (Acts 4:12), sums up the whole teaching of NT history and letters. They are the central truths of the Pauline and other letters: ‘We preach Christ crucified’ (1 Corinthians 1:23), ‘Far be it from me to glory, Save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ’ (Galatians 6:14), ‘He is able to Save to the uttermost them that draw near to God through him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them’ (Hebrews 7:25, cf
Incarnation - ...
The Humanity of Jesus The angel of the Lord, in a prophecy of Jesus' birth, plainly stated the purpose of the incarnation: “[2] shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall Save his people from their sins” (Matthew 1:21 ; compare Luke 19:10 ; John 3:17 ; 1 Timothy 1:15 )
Conversion - James encourages us with the words “that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall Save a soul from death” (James 5:20 )
Habakkuk, Theology of - Only a direct act of God can Save us from ourselves. The writer of the Book of Hebrews follows the Septuagint, which renders the first part of the verse as "if he shrinks back, I will not be pleased with him" (Hebrews 10:38 ), and then goes on to say that "we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who believe and are Saved
King - Me that I should not reign over them"; they distrusted God's power and will to Save them from Nahash (1 Samuel 12:12), though He had delivered them from the Philistines (1 Samuel 7). God Saves not by horses and horsemen, but by the Lord His people's God (Hosea 1:7)
Tears - In this interesting passage, which, while it does not occur in the Gospels, refers to Christ, we are reminded how, in the days of His flesh, He offered up prayers with strong crying and tears unto Him who was able to Save Him from death
Theophilus (2) - Furthermore, if there is no other instance of one Christian hailing another by a secular title in the NT, on the other hand there is no case of a Christian writing for the benefit of any Save fellow-Christians
Jehoiachin - In 2 Kings 24:14 they are said to be 10,000; the details are specified in 2 Kings 24:15-16; "none remained Save the poorest sort of the people of the land," having neither wealth nor skill to raise war, and therefore giving Nebuchadnezzar no fear of rebellion
Jehoiada - his jealous care, amidst the irregularities of a revolution, that none should "come into Jehovah's house Save the priests and ministering Levites," also that Athaliah should be thrust forth outside "the ranges," and not be slain "in the house of Jehovah," 2 Chronicles 23:6; 2 Chronicles 23:14), and zeal for the Lord's honour and the purity of His worship, were conspicuous in Jehoiada. Jehoiada had Saved Joash's life and throne, and had been God's providential instrument in preventing the extinction of David's line, which then hung upon the one seemingly frail thread, but which could not be broken since to it belonged the promises of Messiah; he had stifled the idolatry transplanted into Judah by Joram's marriage into apostate Ahab's house, and restored Jehovah's worship
Restitution - ...
(3) Support for a restorationist doctrine is sometimes sought in those passages of the Pastoral Epistles where it is said that God ‘willeth that all men should be Saved’ (1 Timothy 2:4), that He is ‘the Saviour of all men, specially of them that believe’ (1 Timothy 4:10), that His grace ‘hath appeared, bringing salvation to all men’ (Titus 2:11). Christ Jesus came into the world to Save sinners (1 Timothy 1:15); but to obtain mercy men must ‘believe on him unto eternal life’ (1 Timothy 1:16)
Moses - To Save his life he fled from Egypt to live among the Midianites, a nomadic people who inhabited a barren region that spread from the Sinai Peninsular around the Gulf of Aqabah into the western part of the Arabian Desert
Jesus, the Lord - " He refused to judge, for He came to Save
Abgar - For it stands written concerning me, that they who have seen me will not believe in me, and that they who have not seen me will believe and be Saved. Having become assured that his guest is the promised disciple of Jesus, and that he has come fully empowered to heal and to Save on condition of his exercise of faith, Abgar assures Thaddaeus that his faith is so strong that, had it not been for the presence of the Romans, he would have sent an army to destroy the Jews that crucified Jesus
Paul - On appearing before Festus, to Save himself from being sent to Jerusalem, there being a plot to waylay and murder him, Paul appealed to the emperor. The ship, however, was wrecked at Malta, where they wintered, all on board having been Saved
Advocate - He can, and will Save to the uttermost, all that come to God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them
Mediator - The partaking of both natures gives this completeness of qualification; so that would I have my cause, (and a cause so infinitely important as that the happiness of eternity hangs upon the issue) would I have my cause in one that is able? here it is in the hands of Jesus; for he is God, mighty to Save
Matthew, Gospel by - Here we read, He "shall Save his people from their sins," and in this gospel only is quoted the prophetic name IMMANUEL, 'God with us
Phylacteries, Frontlets - From the Mishna we learn further that women, slaves, and minors were exempted from the obligation of wearing, or in technical phrase ‘laying,’ the tephillin, a duty still incumbent on all male Israelites, from the age of thirteen years and a day, during the recital of morning prayer, on all days Save Sabbaths and festivals
Prudence - ’...
In Jesus’ teaching, as in His life, these prudential maxims are always subservient to the ultimate principle of conduct, love’s paradox, ‘Whosoever will Save his life shall lose it, and whosover will lose his life for my sake shall find it’ (Matthew 16:25, Luke 17:33, John 12:25)
Polycarpus, Bishop of Smyrna - The proconsul appears to have discharged his unpleasant duty with the humanity ordinary among Roman magistrates doing his best to persuade the accused to Save themselves by compliance and no doubt employing the tortures of which the narrative gives a terrible account as a merciful cruelty which might Save him from proceeding to the last extremes. Herod accompanied by his father Nicetes took Polycarp to sit in his carriage and both earnestly urged him to Save his life: "Why what harm was it to say Lord Caesar and to sacrifice and so on and escape all danger?" Polycarp at first silent at last bluntly answered "I will not do as you would have me
Day of the Lord, God, Christ, the - " He explains that nothingneither silver nor goldwill be able to Save them (1:17-18). In the words of Zephaniah, "The Lord your God is with you, he is mighty to Save. It will mean that "everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be Saved" (Joel 2:32 ). Paul urges the church at Corinth to discipline the immoral person so that at the day of the Lord his spirit may be Saved (1 Corinthians 5:5 )
Hebrews, Epistle to the - He then is able to Save completely those who come to God by Him, always living to intercede for them. Everything would be shaken by Him, Save the kingdom which He sets up, and which believers receive
Zechariah, the Book of - Not even Titus could Save the temple from the fury of his soldiery, Julian was unable to rebuild it. ...
But he shall perish, and Judah and Israel be Saved. Messiah-Jehovah shall Save her and destroy the foe of whom the remnant shall turn to Him reigning at Jerusalem
Pre-Existence of Christ - The thought of the Apostolic Church has advanced from the position reflected in the first chapters of Acts, in which there is no hint of a doctrine of pre-existence, to that presupposed even in the earlier Pauline Epistles, where its presence and activity are fully assumed; and apparently nothing Save a process of development so gradual, silent, and unconscious as to have left no trace, bridges the distance between the Pentecostal discourses and Colossians. Granted the premise that Jesus is Saviour and that only the Eternal God can Save, we pass, logically, at a single step from the Acts of the Apostles into Colossians
Tomb, Grave, Sepulchre - A tomb was never opened Save for a fresh interment
Devil - This calumny is refuted by God's not sparing His only begotten Son to Save us
Mission - But God wants more than to Save people
Truth - 1 Timothy 2:4, ‘God willeth that all men should be Saved, and come to the knowledge of the truth’; 1 Timothy 3:15, where the Church of the living God is described as ‘the pillar and ground of the truth’; 2 Timothy 2:15, ‘a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, handling aright the word of truth. Paul especially this fact of experience brought the assurance of God’s readiness to Save and bless all men through faith in Jesus Christ without the necessity of their submitting to any rite of Jewish origin
Tongues, Gift of - No express mention is made of any apostle or evangelist preaching in any tongue Save Greek or Hebrew (Aramaic)
Neonomians - God has eternally elected a certain definite number of men whom he will infallibly Save by Christ in that way prescribed by the Gospel. By both this and the fifth head it appears that all boasting is excluded, and we are Saved by free grace. God in christ thereby commandeth sinners to repent of sin, and receive Christ by a true operative faith, promising that thereupon they shall be united to him, justified by his righteousness, pardoned, and adopted; and that, persevering in faith and true holiness, they shall be finally Saved; also threatening that if any shall die impenitent, unbelieving, ungodly, rejecters of his grace, they shall perish without relief, and endure sorer punishments than if these offers had not been made to them?...
2
Macedonia - The important land route from Byzantium (Istanbul) in the east to the Adriatic Sea in the west (in Roman times the “Via Egnatia”) crosses it as does the north to south road from the central Balkan (the area of the Danube and Save rivers) which reached the Aegean Sea at the Thermaic Gulf and continued past Mount Olympus through the narrow valley of Tempe into Thessaly and central Greece
Mission(s) - ...
The Old Testament emphasized that the nations would have to come to Jerusalem to be Saved. He came to seek and Save the lost (Luke 19:10 )
Law, Ten Commandments, Torah - ...
Second, Paul believed the Law was given for a good purpose, but it could not Save (Galatians 3:11 ; Romans 3:20 ). Therefore, Christ has become the end of the Law for Christians (Romans 10:4 ), and it is faith that Saves and not Law (Ephesians 2:8-9 )
Moses - Distinctiveness in society as God's people, strictness of living in obedience to his laws, and unswerving trust in his power to Save and keep were to be the hallmarks of Hebrew life
Mercy - ...
Generally in the NT sin is described not only as the source of human misery, but as itself the greatest evil from which men need to be delivered; and accordingly the work of God’s mercy is to Save from sin (see Ephesians 2:4-10, Titus 3:3-7)
Isaiah, Book of - There is also grace in store for the latter days: Zion will be a centre of blessing, and a remnant will be Saved. The idols of Babylon could not Save her: she should be brought to shame for her pride
Elisha - ...
A widow ofone of the prophets appealed to Elishato Save her two sonsfrom the grasp of a creditor
Divorce (2) - is concerned, we might, with some difficulty, suppose that the exception ‘save for adultery’ was assumed as a matter so obvious that it needed no explicit expression
Apollos - Paul resolved ‘not to know anything Save Christ, and him crucified’ (1 Corinthians 2:2)
Bread - And his fellow answered and said, This is nothing else Save the sword of Gideon, the son of Joash, a man of Israel; for into his hand hath God delivered Midian, and all the host
Armies - For the Lord your God is he that goeth with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to Save you," ...
Deuteronomy 20:2 , &c
Mercy - ...
Generally in the NT sin is described not only as the source of human misery, but as itself the greatest evil from which men need to be delivered; and accordingly the work of God’s mercy is to Save from sin (see Ephesians 2:4-10, Titus 3:3-7)
Christianity - The purpose of Jesus is announced in His very name; He came ‘to Save his people from their sins’ ( Matthew 1:21 ). His own testimony runs: ‘The Son of Man came to seek and to Save that which was lost’ ( Luke 19:10 ). Paul in like manner, when the Philippian jailor cried out in the night, ‘What must I do to be Saved?’ replied, ‘Believe on the Lord Jesus, and thou shalt be Saved’ ( Acts 16:30-31 ) words which contain in brief the essence of the Apostolic testimony as to the way of salvation
Saviour (2) - —‘Saviour,’ like ‘to Save’ and ‘salvation,’ is a word of frequent occurrence in the OT. For the specific meaning of ‘to Save’ in distinction from other cognate Heb. This is different in Apocryphal and Pseud-epigraphical literature, for here it is not merely declared that in the name of the Son of Man the people are Saved, and that He is the Goel of their life (En 48:7), or that the righteous in connexion with Him shall be satisfied with salvation (4 Ezr 8:39), but also that Christus liberabit creaturam (4 Ezr 12:34, 13:26), and that from Judah and Levi the Lord will raise a Saviour for Israel (Test. In other words, it might become necessary to emphasize that God Saves all men, not merely one class of men, and that no man is by his subjective condition either sunk beneath the possibility or raised above the need of salvation
Kingdom Kingdom of God - ’ The same may be said of 2 Timothy 4:1, ‘his appearance and his kingdom,’ and 2 Timothy 4:18, ‘shall Save me into his eternal kingdom. If he had been further asked what that Kingdom would be, or in what relation it would stand to this present world, he would probably have answered that nearly all that constitutes this present world would have vanished-imperfection, sin, death; and that as to the nature of the new world he could say but little Save that Christ would be there, and that His servants would serve Him, and that that was enough for anyone to know
Guilt (2) - If it be urged that Christ discharges the latter only in virtue of the fact that He destroys the former, as expressed in the words ‘it is he that shall Save his people from their sins’ (Matthew 1:21, but cf. Romans 5:9), the reply is that Jesus is here represented as Saviour in the sense in which Messiah was to Save, and that this is determined by the meaning of ‘salvation’ as developed in the theology of the OT. ...
We shall be Saved from confusion with regard to the Pauline view of guilt, and the necessity of conforming the whole doctrine of sin to this primary idea, by considering what he means by ‘adoption’ and ‘grace
Balaam - The dumb ass was doing her best to arrest and to Save her eloquent master. And she would have deserved it all; for she did all she could do to Save her devoted master, who had ridden her without a single swerve or stumble of hers to that day
Property (2) - And He declares that ‘whosoever will Save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall Save it’ (Mark 8:35, Matthew 10:39; Matthew 16:25, Luke 9:24)
Lamentations - It was adopted to help the memory, and is used to string together reflections not closely bound in unity, Save by the general reference to a common subject
Daniel - As Daniel 2 and Daniel 7 go together, so Daniel 3 and Daniel 6; Daniel 4 and Daniel 5; the pair Daniel 3 and Daniel 6 shows God's nearness to Save His saints, if faithful, just when they are on the point of being crushed by the world power
Predestination - Questions which lead to this development were: If God is sovereign, how can humans be free? If God knows about everything in advance, does that mean that He forces things to be the way they are? Does not God give grace to those who are to be Saved and withhold it from those who are not? If God decreed that some are to be Saved, does this not mean He has predestined others to be damned?...
The problem with these later questions is that they go beyond Scripture in their desire to figure everything out. The only alternatives are to suppose that God is going to force all to be Saved, whether they want to be or not; or that God, in a choosey way, is going to Save some favorites but deliberately withhold salvation from others
Monastery - There were other causes that concurred to bring on their ruin: many of the religious were loose and vicious; the monks were generally thought to be in their hearts attached to the pope's supremacy; their revenues were not employed according to the intent of the donors; many cheats in images, feigned miracles, and counterfeit relics, had been discovered, which brought the monks into disgrace; the observant friars had opposed the king's divorce from queen Catharine; and these circumstances operated, in concurrence with the king's want of a supply and the people's desire to Save their money, to forward a motion in parliament, that, in order to support the king's state, and supply his wants, all the religious houses might be conferred upon the crown, which were not able to spend above 200 50: a year; and an act was passed for that purpose, 27 Hen
Mediator, Mediation - Paul ties these concepts neatly together in 1 Timothy 2:4-6 when he declares that God's desire to Save all people is expressed in the "one mediator, " Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all
Priest - And how graciously the Lord adds, "Wherefore he is able also to Save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them
Athens - It is significant that in Corinth the Apostle determined-not, indeed, for the first time, but certainly with a new emphasis-not to know anything Save Jesus Christ and Him crucified (1 Corinthians 2:2), who was for both Jews and Hellenes the power of God and the wisdom of God (1:24)
Duty - We do not deny that character must express itself in action; that charity without works is a contradiction; that the good will cannot be formed Save by doing good
Assyria - But the firm purpose of the Lord was to defend that city to Save it
Passover And Feast of Unleavened Bread - And, finally, the connexion with the pastoral sacrifice would have been forgotten, and the Passover would be treated as instituted in order to Save the firstborn of Israel
Pilate - He had probably not taken the trouble to understand the fierce passions of the people whom he was sent to govern, and when worsted by them in early encounters, the scorn which Romans felt for Jews became in him something like hatred, and a strong desire to be avenged on their leaders at all costs Save one, namely, disgrace at Rome
Joab - Joab so effectively besieged Abel of Beth Maachah that the townsmen were glad to Save their town by sacrificing Sheba, throwing his head, at the suggestion of a wise woman in the town, over the wall to Joab
Jonathan - His armourbearer agreed with all his heart to join in the hazardous enterprise; Jonathan's strong faith in God inspired his companion in arms with the same chivalrous devotion; "there is no restraint to the Lord, to Save by many or few
Incarnation (2) - From Xenophanes, with his assertion that nothing is Save Being, and Heraclitus, with his counter assertion that all is flux, the problem of the higher synthesis is handed on to thinkers who, philosophizing imperially, seek to exhibit the ultimate unity of the universe as ‘the Good,’ or ‘Thought of Thought. It is little wonder, therefore, that the hope of Israel did not retain its purity and spirituality, Save in the hearts of an inner circle of whom the theologians and politicians of the time took no account,—the poor in spirit, the mourners, the meek, the pure in heart. The amazing fact, accordingly is, that, in spite of such knowledge, He loved men, believed in their high destiny, yearned to Save them, and was ready to give the supreme proof of His love by dying for them
Authority of Christ - Our theory of them may be different, but that only means that we belong to a different age; it does not touch the truth that from these terrible and mysterious woes Jesus was mighty to Save. ‘All things have been delivered unto me by my Father, and no one knoweth the Son Save the Father, neither doth any know the Father Save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son willeth to reveal him
Redemption (2) - —The foundations of the NT doctrine of redemption are laid in the OT conceptions of the holiness, righteousness, and grace of Jehovah, and of sin as something abhorrent to Jehovah’s holiness, which He must needs condemn and punish, but from which He desires to Save. ‘The angel which hath redeemed me from all evil,’ says Jacob, in the earliest instance of the use of the word נָּאֵל, in Genesis 48:16; and again in Isaiah 63:9 we have, with the use of the same word, the like idea: ‘In all their affliction he was afflicted, and the angel of his presence Saved them; in his love and in his pity he redeemed them,’ etc. the child is called Jesus, ‘for it is he that shall Save his people from their sins’ (Luke 1:21). Souls in this condition are ‘lost’; need to be, in their helplessness and misery, sought after and Saved (Luke 15:3 ff; Luke 19:10)
Galatians Epistle to the - When at length he did visit Jerusalem, he saw none of the apostles Save Cephas and James, and them only for a short time. Christ’s death was superfluous and meaningless (Galatians 2:21), for men can Save themselves
Sin (2) - He was the shepherd bringing home the lost sheep dispersed upon the mountains (John 10:16); or, somewhat to vary the idea, the Redeemer coming into the world, not to judge it along with its prince, but to Save it from the Evil One (Hosea 11:1 John 12:31; John 12:47, John 17:15), and casting out the indwelling Satan by the finger or Spirit of God (Luke 11:20). That Jesus Christ is come in the flesh to Save the world is St
Brethren of the Lord (2) - Thus the Gospels represent Jesus as lamenting the unbelief and want of sympathy of His near relatives: ‘A prophet is not without honour, Save in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house’ (Mark 6:4); and again, ‘My time is not yet come, but your time is alway ready. It is no sufficient reply to this to say that in Galatians 1:19 James is called an Apostle (‘But other of the apostles saw I none, Save [5] James the Lord’s brother’)
Peter - "Fear not, henceforth thou shalt catch to Save alive (zoogroon ) men," was Jesus' explanation of the typical meaning of the miracle. " Jesus answered, cf6 "he that is bathed (all over, namely, regenerated once for all, leloumenos ) cf6 needeth not Save to wash (nipsasthai , a part) cf6 his feet, but is clean every whit. At the council of Jerusalem (Acts 15) Peter led the discussion, citing the case of Cornelius' party as deciding the question, for" God which knoweth the hearts bore them witness, giving them the Holy Spirit even as He did unto us, and put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith," "but we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be Saved, even as they"; compare his epistles in undesigned coincidence (1 Peter 1:22; 2 Peter 1:9)
Fall (2) - ‘The Son of man came to seek and to Save’ (Luke 19:10); ‘God sent forth his Son … that he might redeem’ (Galatians 4:4 f. (7) Generally the whole mission of Christ to ransom men (Mark 10:45), to Save (Matthew 1:21, Luke 19:10 etc
Galatians, Letter to the - Must the Gentiles become a part of the Jewish faith to be fully Christian? Certain Jewish Christians, called Judaizers, said that the Gentiles must also obey the law of Moses and be circumcized to be Saved. Faith in Christ Saves, but legalism cannot Save (Galatians 2:15-21 )
Isaac - What Isaac's sacrifice wanted to perfect the type was actual death and vicarious substitution; the offering of the ram's life instead of the human life, hereby Saved, supplied the defect; the ram and Isaac jointly complete the type. The angel's intervention, the ram's substitution, and the prohibition of the human sacrifice prevent the possibility of supposing God sanctions any human sacrifice Save that of the Antitype
Antiochus - Saved from extinction until the times of the Romans. Persecution was God's appointed way to Save His people from seductions which had wellnigh made them compromise their witness for His truth
Marks Stigmata - 3]'>[1]); and that no man should be able to buy or to sell, Save he that hath the mark, even the name of the beast or the number of his name
Intercession - ): ‘Save those among us who are in tribulation; have mercy on the lowly; lift up the fallen; show Thyself unto the needy; heal the ungodly; convert the wanderers of Thy people; feed the hungry; release our prisoners; raise up the meek; comfort the fainthearted
Corinthians, Epistles to the - He was made all things to all that he might Save some
Dominion (2) - He came not to judge, but to Save the world (John 12:47); ‘I judge no man,’ He said to the Jews (John 8:15)
Amen - phrases were taken, of course, from the Bible, where, Save in the case of Luther’s edition and the Septuagint version of the earlier books of the OT, no attempt has been made to replace them by foreign equivalents
Money - Lastly, they gave this metal, by public authority, a certain mark, a certain weight, and a certain degree of alloy, to fix its value, and to Save buyers and sellers the trouble of weighing and examining the coins
New Moon - ...
When we consider how conspicuously the Sabbath figures in the NT, and what traces we have of such great annual feasts as Passover and Pentecost, it is singular that, Save for a passing reference in Colossians 2:16 and Galatians 4:10, we have no hint that a monthly festival was still observed in apostolic times
Intercession - ): ‘Save those among us who are in tribulation; have mercy on the lowly; lift up the fallen; show Thyself unto the needy; heal the ungodly; convert the wanderers of Thy people; feed the hungry; release our prisoners; raise up the meek; comfort the fainthearted
Wisdom - They, on the other hand, were to be Saved by the wisdom of the schools. It has not been Saved by dialectic; God ‘will not be apprehended by intellectual speculation, by “dry fight” ’ (EGT ii. ...
The Apostle’s experience in Athens (Acts 17:16-34) had not encouraged him to meet philosophers on their own ground, and, when he came to Corinth, it was with the deliberate purpose of not commending his message by the devices of rhetorical display, or the arguments of philosophy-‘I came not with any striking rhetorical or philosophical display, for I determined not to know anything among you Save Jesus Christ, and him crucified’ (1 Corinthians 2:1-2). Paul, but Philonism did not Save the world; it was the simple, unaffected word of the Cross from a preacher such as St
Holiness - An early stage is seen in 1 Samuel 6:20 ‘Who is able to stand before the Lord, this holy God?’ None may approach Him Save those who have complied with the prescribed regulations (cf. ...
(b) Our Lord never speaks of any person, Save the Father and the Spirit, as holy; and only once does He describe any thing as holy
Consciousness - He addresses God as ‘Father, Lord of heaven and earth,’ a great expression which foreshadows the truth which follows: ‘All things have been delivered unto me of my Father; and no one knoweth the Son, Save the Father; neither doth any know the Father, Save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son willeth to reveal him’ (Matthew 11:27)
Old Testament - Its purpose was not to Save men, but to hold them in ward or prison until the true faith should be revealed (Galatians 3:23). But the Law itself was quite powerless to Save
Jesus Christ - “He shall Save his people from their sins” (Matthew 1:21 )
Marriage - ...
Scripture teaches the unity of husband and wife; the indissolubleness of marriage Save by death or fornication (Matthew 5:32; Matthew 19:9; Romans 7:3); monogamy; the equality of both (iysh ) and (ishah ) being correlative, and she a "help-meet for him," i
Atonement - In Leviticus 1:4; Leviticus 4:26; Leviticus 5:1; Leviticus 5:16-18; Leviticus 5:16; Leviticus 17:11, the truth is established that the guilt is transferred from the sinful upon the innocent substitute, in order to make amends to violated justice, and to cover (atone: kipper' al ) or put out of sight the guilt (compare Micah 7:19 end), and to Save the sinner from the wages of sin which is death. Κaphar and kopher is in Genesis 6:14, "Thou shalt pitch the ark with pitch," the instrument of covering the Saved from the destroying flood outside, as Jesus' blood interposes between believers and the flood of wrath that swallows up the lost
Saul - Here the lot was drawn (10:17-27), and it fell upon Saul, and when he was presented before them, the stateliest man in all Israel, the air was rent for the first time in Israel by the loud cry, "God Save the king!" He now returned to his home in Gibeah, attended by a kind of bodyguard, "a band of men whose hearts God had touched. "So the Lord Saved Israel that day
Apocalyptic - A mark of ownership is set upon them, not to Save them from the experience of war, famine, and disease, but to ensure that they will be among those who "come out of the great tribulation" (7:14), and who will no longer hunger or thirst (7:16)
House - The parts of the eastern house are:...
(1) The porch; not referred to in the Old Testament Save in the temple and Solomon's palace (1 Kings 7:6-7; 2 Chronicles 15:8; Ezekiel 40:7; Ezekiel 40:16); in Egypt (from whence he derived it) often it consisted of a double row of pillars; in Judges 3:23 the Hebrew word (the front hall) is different
Sayings (Unwritten) - For the Son of Man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to Save them’ (Luke 9:55-56); ‘Father, forgive them: for they know not what they do’ (Luke 23:34)
Judgment, Day of - It is emphasized as strongly as it could possibly be that Christ came to this world to Save sinners and that he Saved them by laying down his perfect life on Calvary's cross. It is not then a question of whether we are Saved or not. " We are Saved not by Acts of kindness but only by Christ (Acts 4:12 )
Atonement - Thus, the cross is simultaneously a manifestation of God's will to Save and of His wrath against sin. These are the people who have been Saved from sin
Salt - " (Leviticus 2:13)...
Now if we first consider the property of salt, that it is to Save from corruption, we discover that the salt, which was never to be omitted in the offering, was the grand object the Lord had regard to in the whole. Oh, for grace to know our mercies, and truly to value them! For he that now Saves from corruption, will one day be the everlasting condemnation of those that reject him
Feasts - Save us we beseech Thee
Amos - Amos’ true significance in religious history is that with him prophecy breaks away on its true line, individual, direct, responsible to none Save God
Discipline - This will Save from idleness and unfruitfulness
Abram - So that when the whole subject is properly considered and taken into one complete view, so far was the faith of the patriarch from being lessened by the exercise, as in the first blush of the history it seemed to appear, that by the means Abraham adopted, he still threw himself with confidence on the Lord, to Save his beloved Sarah from ruin, and his life from danger; and without this trust in the Lord, and dependence on the Lord's interposition, Abraham could not but well know, that whether he had called Sarah, sister, or wife, the peril was the same
Work - ...
The phrase “work of one’s hands” signifies the worthlessness of the idols fashioned by human hands: “Asshur shall not Save us; we will not ride upon horses: neither will we say any more to the work of our hands, Ye are our gods: for in thee the fatherless findeth mercy” ( Plagues, the Ten, - Man and beast were smitten, and the herbs and every tree broken, Save in the land of Goshen
Mystery - The conception of the gospel itself as a ‘mystery’ is found nowhere else Save in the Pauline Epistles
Praise (2) - ’ Our Lord’s words in this connexion are striking: ‘Were there none found that returned to give glory to God, Save this stranger?’ (Luke 17:18)—words which imply that the duty of grateful praise to God was not always fully recognized in individual practice
Inspiration And Revelation - For who among men knoweth the things of a man, Save the spirit of the man, which is in him? Even so the things of God none knoweth, Save the Spirit of God
Teaching of Jesus - In the Galilaean period He does not as a rule preach at all, but He teaches: and indeed not about the Kingdom of God (which doe not occur at all, Save in the addition Mark 4:30; Mark 4:32), but, in unconstrained succession, touching this and that matter which comes in His way; obvious truths, with reference to the needs of a general public, which is misled by its spiritual leaders’ (p. ’ The sense which He gave to it, as distinct from the associations currently attaching to it in various circles of Judaism, seems to be chiefly ‘brotherhood with toiling and struggling humanity, which He who most thoroughly accepted its conditions was fittest also to Save’ (Sanday)
Judgment Damnation - If passages appear in which He is made to disclaim the office of Judge-‘I came not to judge the world but to Save the world’-they are added in order, by seeming contradiction, to drive thought deeper (John 12:47; John 5:45; John 3:17). His real purpose is, indeed, to Save, but none the less His appearance in the world has the inevitable result that a separation is effected between the children of light and the children of darkness
Religion (2) - The immediacy of revelation to Him is fully declared in Matthew 11:27 ‘All things are delivered unto me of my Father, and no one knoweth the Son Save the Father; neither doth any know the Father, Save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son willeth to reveal him
Mediator - ...
(a) The ‘wisdom’ of our Lord impressed His hearers at Nazareth, and when they were offended at the difference which they noted between Him and His humble family, Jesus said, ‘A prophet is not without honour, Save in his own country, and in his own house’ (Matthew 13:54-58). Assuming that Christ did institute this sacrament, we may also assume that He who taught His own not to fear those who kill the body, did not mean that when His blood was shed ‘for many’ it was shed to Save them from being killed by the Jews or Romans. And, like the blood of the Paschal lamb, the blood of Jesus Saves His people from a destruction that comes from God. In consequence of His resurrection, baptism ‘saves’ us (1 Peter 3:21)
Arius, Followers of - During this period the attitude of all the various parties Save those who adhered to the Nicene symbol is most perplexing, and the changes of opinion most bewildering. Sirmium, in Slavonia, between the Save and the Drave, now takes the place of Antioch in the matter of creed-making
Calendar, the Christian - Probably ever since the Return from the Captivity, Monday and Thursday had been the Jewish fasts, though we read of Judith fasting daily Save on Sabbaths and New Moons and the eves of both and ‘the feasts and solemn days of the house of Israel’ (Judith 8:6). Pseudo-Ignatius forbids a Christian to fast on Sunday, Save on Easter Even [22], lest he be a ‘Christ-slayer’ (χριστοκτόνος)
Work - Human work, placed not at the service of self but at the service of God, Saves. This blessing eventually elevates him to the top administrative position in Egypt whereby he is able to use his skill to Save not only the Egyptians but many peoples from natural disaster. In light of God's coming great work to judge and to Save, John called people to repentance
Faith - Paul writes: ‘Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, Save (but only, ἐὰν μή) through faith in Jesus Christ, even we believed on Christ Jeans that we might be justified by faith in Christ. The Death of Christ occupies so large a place in his thought that he is determined to know nothing Save Jesus Christ and Him crucified (1 Corinthians 2:2), while he insists so strongly on the Resurrection as to declare: ‘If Christ hath not been raised; your faith is vain’ (1 Corinthians 15:17). So in Ephesians 2:8 it is said: ‘By grace have ye been Saved through faith’ (διὰτῆς πίστεως, not διὰ τὴν πίστιν, i
Palestine - ...
The tract, nine miles wide and 35 long, between the center and the sudden descent to the Dead Sea, is desolate at all seasons, a series of hills without vegetation, water, and almost life, with no ruins Save Masada and one or two watchtowers. The plain is one vast grainfield, produced without manure, Save that supplied by the deposits washed down by the streams from the hills, without irrigation, and with only the simplest agriculture
Annunciation, the - We may reverently say that the Annunciation to Mary was a necessity in order to Save her from dreadful perplexity and suffering. He would not have belonged to the same race as those whom He came to Save
Pentecost - It does not seem clear that he had any principle to go on in this enumeration, Save that roughly he begins in what must have been to him the Far East (‘Parthians and Medes’) and ends with the West (‘sojourners from Rome’), and then adds, a little inconsequently, ‘Cretans and Arabians. Looking back from his then standpoint, the historian could not adequately account for the actually existing and widespread Church, Save through some Divine enthusiasm kindled in men’s hearts by God indwelling and working in them with power and love
Faith - Paul writes: ‘Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, Save (but only, ἐὰν μή) through faith in Jesus Christ, even we believed on Christ Jeans that we might be justified by faith in Christ. The Death of Christ occupies so large a place in his thought that he is determined to know nothing Save Jesus Christ and Him crucified (1 Corinthians 2:2), while he insists so strongly on the Resurrection as to declare: ‘If Christ hath not been raised; your faith is vain’ (1 Corinthians 15:17). So in Ephesians 2:8 it is said: ‘By grace have ye been Saved through faith’ (διὰτῆς πίστεως, not διὰ τὴν πίστιν, i
Pentecost - It does not seem clear that he had any principle to go on in this enumeration, Save that roughly he begins in what must have been to him the Far East (‘Parthians and Medes’) and ends with the West (‘sojourners from Rome’), and then adds, a little inconsequently, ‘Cretans and Arabians. Looking back from his then standpoint, the historian could not adequately account for the actually existing and widespread Church, Save through some Divine enthusiasm kindled in men’s hearts by God indwelling and working in them with power and love
Timothy, Epistles to - ...
On the other hand, not a word is raised by earlier writers against their genuineness, Save by the heretics Marcion and Basilides; and their rejection was due not to any stated doubts as to the Pauline authorship, but apparently to dislike to the teaching of the Epistles
Family Life And Relations - In an earlier period, Noah was able to Save his entire family from destruction (Genesis 7:1 ) because of his righteousness; Lot's entire family was spared because of him (Genesis 19:1-28 )

Nothing, however, is here said to favour the conclusion, that many others who were called by the Gospel, but refused, might not have been justified and glorified as well as they; nothing to distinguish this calling into common and effectual: and the very guilt which those are every where represented as contracting who despised the Gospel calling, shows that they reject a grace which is sufficient, and sincerely intended, to Save them

Vicarious Sacrifice - Only by a denial of His vocation in establishing the Kingdom of God could He have Saved His life; only by what was impossible with Him—the forgetting of the will of God and the ceasing to love men. We conclude, then, that this important passage simply means that Jesus vicariously sacrificed His life in order to Save men from the selfishness of sin. Evil is using the occasion of His voluntary, vicarious death as an opportunity for more violent manifestation, and the men He is trying to Save are at work to put Him to death.

Old Testament (ii. Christ as Student And Interpreter of). - A similar expedient is carried out in the Twentieth Century NT, Save that there quotations and reminiscences from the Apocryphal literature are also indicated.

Naaman - O son of sin and Satan, O child of wrath, wilt thou not submit thyself to be Saved? Wilt thou not so much as wash thyself?

Oh, able to Save to the uttermost, wash me, Saviour, or I die! 'How,' asks the disciple in Jacob Behmen's Supersensual Life, 'How shall I be able to subsist in all this anxiety and tribulation so as not to lose the eternal peace?' And the Master answers; 'If thou dost once every hour throw thyself by faith beyond all creatures into the abysmal mercy of God, into the sufferings of our Lord, and into the fellowship of His intercession, and yieldest thyself fully and absolutely thereunto, then thou shalt receive grace from above to rule over death and the devil, and to subdue hell and the world under thee

The Transfiguration is represented by the voice from heaven in John 12:7; John 12:28; while the preceding verse (which should be printed as a question, ‘Shall I say, Father, Save me from this hour?’) is intended to compensate us for the loss of the Agony in the Garden
Christ in Reformation Theology - ’ The Greek type of piety fed itself on the mysterious union of natures; the Incarnation was the central thought in Christianity, and salvation appeared to the Eastern Church as a species of diffusion of the Incarnation: men were Saved when they were absorbed in the Divine. It was no mere semblance of a man who was now exalted at the Father’s right hand, but one who was bone of our bone, and flesh of our flesh, to whom no human experience, Save sin, was foreign,—a boy who enjoyed his play and helped in little household duties, a man who shared the common lot of toil and weariness and temptation, a real man living a true human life under conditions not so far removed from our own.

The strong declaration "baptism that now Saves you" recalls Mark 16:16 as well as Peter's "command" to baptize ( Acts 10:48 ).

Now Peter cites Noah and his pitiful minority amid another evil generation; only eight souls Saved by the flood from God's judgment upon that sinful age
James - In Luke 9:55-56, "ye know not what manner of spirit ye are (not the fiery judicial spirit which befitted Elijah's times, but the spirit of love so as to win men to salvation, is the spirit of Me and Mine), for the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives but to Save them," is not in Alex

Joab - Joab ran Absalom three times through the heart right in the teeth of David's command to spare and Save Absalom alive. Those two bad men were, each in his own wicked way, of such rich and indispensable use to David, if David was to be searched out, hunted down, laid low, and Saved at last
Nabal - Nabal would rather have died of David's sword than have been Saved from David's sword by the understanding and the interposition and the intercession of his wife.

Atonement - If it then be true, that the release of offending man from future punishment, and his restoration to the divine favour, ought, for the interests of mankind themselves, and for the instruction and caution of other beings, to be so bestowed, that no license shall be given to offence;—...
that God himself, whilst he manifests his compassion, should not appear less just, less holy, than he really is;—that his authority should be felt to be as compelling, and that disobedience should as truly, though not unconditionally, subject us to the deserved penalty, as though no hope of forgiveness had been exhibited;—we ask, On what scheme, Save that which is developed in the New Testament, are these necessary conditions provided for? Necessary they are, unless we contend for a license and an impunity which shall annul all good government in the universe, a point for which no reasonable man will contend; and if so, then we must allow that there is strong internal evidence of the truth of the doctrine of Scripture, when it makes the offer of pardon consequent only upon the securities we have before mentioned. " All the ends of government are here answered—no license is given to offence,—the moral law is unrepealed,—a day of judgment is still appointed,—future and eternal punishments still display their awful sanctions,—a new and singular display of the awful purity of the divine character is afforded,—yet pardon is offered to all who seek it; and the whole world may be Saved.

or purposed the actual justifying and saving of all, nor of any but those that come to be justified and Saved; he did not, therefore, die for all, nor for any that perish, with a decree or resolution to Save...
them, much less did he die for all alike, as to this intent
Temple - The rancour and virulence they had conceived against him for this speech, was not softened by all the affecting circumstances of that wretched death they saw him die; even as he hung upon the cross, with triumph, scorn, and exultation, they upbraided him with it, contemptuously shaking their heads, and saying, "Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, Save thyself! If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross!" Matthew 27:40
Paul - “For I determined not to know anything among you, Save Jesus Christ, and him crucified” (1 Corinthians 2:2 )

Election - -Election, in the teaching of the apostles, is the method by which God gives effect to His eternal purpose to redeem and Save mankind; so that the elect are those who are marked out in God’s purpose of grace from eternity as heirs of salvation. The unconditional character of the Divine choice, emphasized in these statements of the Apostle, is affirmed again when, writing to Timothy, he bids him suffer for the gospel ‘according to the power of God, who Saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose of grace which was given in Christ Jesus before times eternal’ (2 Timothy 1:9). When Jews in numbers come to seek as their own the righteousness and goodness which they see thus manifested in the lives of Christians, and are stirred up to envy and emulation by the contemplation of them, the time will be at hand when all Israel-Israel as a nation-shall be Saved.

James Epistle of - ), ‘the implanted word, which is able to Save your souls’ (James 1:21; cf. (1) In denying that a man is Saved by faith without works, James is attacking a paradox; but no one is at pains to attack a paradox unless someone else had previously maintained it

Corinthians, First And Second, Theology of - Although the crucifixion of Jesus is nonsense and the epitome of weakness to the non-Christian, it is the wisdom and power of God to those who are being Saved. According to the apostle, the person who is in Christ is Saved (the age to come is already present) but that salvation is not complete (the age to come is not yet consummated). ...
The term "save" also occurs in 1 Corinthians 9:22 with reference to those who embrace Christ (cf. In 1Corinthians 15:1-2Paul reminds his audience that their salvation is based on the gospel, "the gospel which you received By this gospel you are Saved
Missions - In connexion with the visit of the Greeks, He uttered the pregnant and impressive prophecy, ‘I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me’ (John 12:32); and a little further on in the same chapter we find the words, ‘I came not to judge the world, but to Save the world’ (John 12:47). He quotes the words of Joel in explanation of what had happened at Pentecost, saying, It shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, that I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh’ (Acts 2:17), And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be Saved’ (Acts 2:21). The great declaration, Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is no other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be Saved’ (Acts 4:12), is meaningless, if there was not behind it a consciousness of the universal character of Christianity, and, as a consequence, the consciousness of a universal mission
Herod - But external prosperity did not Save him from internal troubles, the fruits of his own lust and insatiable cruelty. Unimportant as the event seemed to the world, the murder of the innocents was the consummation of his guilt before God, and places him among the foremost of Satan's and the world's foretold (Jeremiah 31:15) representative adversaries of the Lord and His church, answering to the Pharaoh who oppressed Christ's type, Israel, murdering the male children in the nation's infancy in order to stifle the nation's first beginnings; but in vain, for God secured the nation's Exodus from Egypt by the tyrant's overthrow, just as subsequently He Saved Jesus and destroyed Herod, and in due time "called His (antitypical) Son out of Egypt" (Matthew 2:15; compare Hosea 11:1). ...

Religious Experience - ...
That Jesus Christ was the Saviour every man needed, One who could Save up to and beyond the limit of the man’s best hope, was the common thought of those who most thoughtfully observed His influence and reported His words. ’ In the Synoptics the command is ‘Come,’ and if you endure to the end you ‘shall be Saved.

Romans, Theology of - 16-18): On the positive side, the gospel is powerful to Save everyone who has faith, Jew and Gentile alike; but it also has a negative cut like the sword of Hebrews 4:12 , for those who suppress the truth in unrighteousness receive the gospel as the wrath of God against their ungodliness. The believer is accordingly Saved by the twofold work of Christ: in his life of faithful perfection, which is imputed to the Christian, and in his death and resurrection, which remove the penalty of eternal separation from God. Whether it is Jacob over Esau, Moses over Pharaoh, or now the Gentiles over Paul's own kind, it is by God's sovereign grace that even a remnant is Saved. Since "all" in 5:18-21 and in 11:32 does not imply every single member of a group, so here "all Israel" in context most likely means the whole (unspecified) remnant of Israel will be Saved, the point being, against Gentile arrogance, that God still has a place in his sovereign plan for Paul's ethnic people

Childhood - The writer has nothing to tell Save the story of the Visit to the Temple, and contents himself for the rest with simple general statements in Hebraic phraseology that irresistibly reminds us of what is said of ‘the child Samuel’ (1 Samuel 2:21; 1 Samuel 2:26)
Birth of Christ - Matthew (" translation="">Matthew 1:21) emphasizes the meaning of the word Jesus, ‘for it is he that shall Save (σώσει) his people from their sins’; and St. —The intercourse just referred to would at least have Saved St. Luke’s accuracy, so well attested in other respects, would have Saved him from making an initial and needless error, and that the least consideration would have prevented him from connecting such an event as an enrolment of the people with the birth of the Messiah at Bethlehem, unless it was true
Anger (2) - ’ The objects of Christ’s anger here are the people in the synagogue, who maintained an obstinate and prejudiced silence when He asked them, ‘Is it lawful on the Sabbath day to do good or to do evil, to Save life or to kill?’ What roused His anger was partly their inhumanity, which eared nothing for the disablement of the man with the withered hand, but even more, perhaps, the misrepresentation of God of which they were guilty, when in His honour (as they would have it) they justified inhumanity on the Sabbath day
Oracle - The Pythian declared, that Minerva, the protectress of Athens, had endeavoured in vain to appease the wrath of Jupiter; yet that Jupiter, in complaisance to his daughter, was willing the Athenians should Save themselves within wooden walls; and that Salamis should behold the loss of a great many children, dear to their mothers, either when Ceres was spread abroad, or gathered together

Papias - ’...

Chrysostom, John, Bishop of Constantinople - Her shortlived religious zeal had burnt itself out, and when she found Chrysostom too clear-sighted to be imposed upon by an outward show of piety, and too uncompromising to connive at wrong-doing even in the highest places, and that not even her rank as empress could Save her and her associates from public censure, her former attachment was changed into the most implacable enmity
Babylon - "The ground is extremely soft, and tiresome to walk over, and appears completely exhausted of all its building materials; nothing now is left, Save one towering hill, the earth of which is mixed with fragments of broken brick, red varnished pottery, tile, bitumen, mortar, glass, shells, and pieces of mother of pearl,"—worthless fragments, of no value to the poorest

Jerusalem - But the Jews had caused themselves to be sufficiently respected to obtain conditions of peace on both occasions, and to Save their city; till, at length, Hyrcanus, in the year 130 B
Confession - The following is an apology for those clauses, by the late venerable Archdeacon Dodwell, who seems to have felt none of those misgivings which troubled his doubting brethren;— "The form, as well as the substance, of this creed, and the very introduction to the main article, has been objected to:...
‘Whosoever will be Saved, before all things it is necessary that he hold the catholic faith;' to which is added, ‘Which faith, except every one do keep whole and undefiled, without doubt he shall perish everlastingly. But the ground of this charge, and the whole of the difficulty suggested in it, from the variety of the circumstances of different persons, depends upon the interpretation of the phrase of ‘being Saved. ...
‘Whosoever,' then, says the creed, ‘will' thus ‘be Saved,' will be desirous to secure the glorious promises of the Gospel, must pursue it upon the terms which that Gospel proposes, and particularly must embrace the doctrines which it reveals.

Julianus, Flavius Claudius, Emperor - He left the city in low spirits and with many tears, and, stretching out his hands to the Acropolis, besought Athena to Save her suppliant—an act which, he tells us, many saw him perform ( ib
Pelagianism And Pelagius - He professed his belief that infants ought to be baptized for the remission of sins in accordance with church practice, as the Lord had appointed that the kingdom of heaven could not be bestowed Save upon the baptized
Perfection (of Jesus) - With what irony He sketches the indecision of the Pharisees, in the story of the children who will play neither at funerals nor at weddings! What deeper criticism of a prudential morality is there than in the words ‘he that Saveth his life shall lose it’? what clearer perception of the hopelessness of a man’s attempt at self-deliverance than the parable of the house swept and garnished but empty? There is His indictment of the Pharisees (Matthew 23). He was not sent Save as the physician of sick souls and the shepherd of lost ones
Theodoretus, Bishop of Cyrrhus - All eventually yielded to combined entreaties and menaces Save Alexander and a small band of irreconcilables, who were banished from their sees
